Taschen: Advertising from the Mad Men Era

I'm a fan of the Mad Men series and so I love this one to be published by Taschen in March. It's so chauvinistic and clever. To see Don Draper's world in one book (actually it's a two volume hardcover) might be great: all the best of American print advertising at the height of American consumerism and capitalism in the 1950s and 1960s. Tons of cars, booze and cigarettes are waiting for us!
