Ads from the space age With the consumerist euphoria of the fifties still going strong and the race to the moon at its height, the mood of advertising in the sixties was cheerful, optimistic, and at times, revolutionary. The decade's ads touted perceived progress (such as Tang-?just add water?) while striving to reinforce good old American values. Stars like Raquel Welch, Sean Connery, Woody Allen, and Sammy Davis Jr. endorsed everything from sunglasses to bourbon to handmade suits in an attempt by Madison Avenue to urge Americans to open their wallets and participate in one giant consumer binge. Social change at the end of the era brought psychedelic swirls and liberated women and minorities to a newly conscious public. From forgotten cars such as the Studebaker Avanti, to cigarettes (?Marlboro... a man's world of flavor?) to food, clothing, consumer products, furniture, travel, and much more, this colorful collection of print ads explores the wide, wonderful world of 60s Americana.

are reviewed in these ads. It was like stepping back into the past. Brought back some great memories. Great book.

I am 67 years old and, because of my background in the South related to racism, am giving presentations (as a guest) related to the Civil Rights Era for three high school history classes next week. In preparation, I wanted a book on advertising in the 60s to demonstrate the predominance of white faces that people of color had to look at every day as the "ideal people". I found The Golden Age of Advertising - the 60s on Amazon and ordered it. While I can not do a scientific study related to '60s ads solely with this book, my sense is that its ads are pretty representative of what was out there in the mainstream at that time.

According to the 1960 census, just over 10% of the black+white population was black. This book has 256 ads with people, only 8 of which have blacks (including 2 specifically oriented to the black community, a couple with servants of black people [a porter, for example], etc.). Of the 866+ people and caricatures that can be identified by race in the book's ads, only 16 of them are black (when 2 ads that appear to target the black neighborhoods are eliminated, it ends up being 11 or 1.24% of the people...1 in about 80).

In the book's introduction, Steven Heller states, "Advertising will never be neutral. It must always demonstrate that one thing is better than the next thing, and that that thing is also the best thing." This is very true, and it is applicable to the presentation of races in the ads. People of color are given the message that "white" is better, "white" is best.

The number of white faces in the book's ads does not surprise me. What does surprise me is that the introduction does not point out what this says about racism and race relations in the 60s.

Otherwise, it is a great book with what is probably a very good representation of 1960s mainstream ads.

America in the early 1960's was a brash place with a sense of future and a confidence in itself and its success that dominated society and advertising. This book, through its selections and organization of those ad's catches the period and the energy of an ascendant culture, sure of itself and its future before the toll of the negatives of the 60's sapped the spirit and vitality of a nation that was heading for the stars and replaced it with doubt and guilt.

These ad's show a world without Vietnam, without racial unrest and rioting, without a hint of the contemporaneous anti-establishment revolution that would lead to distrust in government, in industry and in general create the malaise of the Carter years and beyond to today.

America made things back then and it's hard to find a ad for a product not made in the USA. Who would guess today that Chrysler made Saturn rockets for the moon program or that 3M made stereos?

There is a sadness when one notes how many of the companies whose advertisements are shown no longer exist or exist only as shells selling made in China goods.

First, the best thing about this book in my opinion, is the price! 13 bux for a hard cover with full-coloured, glossy page reference book is just great value for money. Moreover you don't get to see advertisements like these anymore. This book makes me wish that I was born in the 60s!

Automobiles, undergarments (love the maidenbra lol), fashion, rock posters, foodstuffs, movie posters, electrical appliances (which are ingenius in its own right), cosmetic adverts... nostalgia, kitsch, witty descriptions and visual pleasure, as well as an obsession with space travel & hippy culture. It's really fun to flip through the book, I'm sure the graphic artists in the heydays had fun making them too (note: many adverts in the 60s are good ol' hand painted works of art). Only thing left to do now is to release a 2nd book 'cuz I sure don't mind more.

I'm writing this review to warn those that might be trying to decide between this book and the two other Taschen books of 60's ads- All-American Ads of the 60's (Midi Series) and All-American Ads of the 60's (Icons Series)- that all three contain basically the same content. The Midi series volume is huge and contains the most ads, but is also the most expensive. The Icons series is the most abbreviated and inferior to The Golden Age of Advertising, in that this edition (the one you're looking at now) is hardback and contains the best and funniest of the ads.
