Ad Boy – Maskottchen aus der Werbung

Ad Boy: Vintage Advertising with Character von Warren Dotz und Masud Husain ist ein bunt bebilderter Überblick über die Welt der Werbemaskottchen des mittleren 20. Jahrhunderts mit vielen mir bislang unbekannten, sehenswerten Figuren. Hier das Buch bei Amazon (Partner-Link)

The postwar, twentieth-century economic boom launched a generation of charming, cheeky, and relentlessly cheerful critters and characters that found their way into American homes-and hearts-in print, on television, and on packaging. Some took detours that reflected historic events: Elsie the Cow was sent into space in 1958. Some were fashion victims who managed to survive the times-who can forget Hippy Hush Puppies, circa 1969? And some sadly, are no longer with us, like the Frito Bandito who was finally brought to justice in 1971. These endearingly offbeat creations are as fresh and engaging today as they were when they first appeared in decades past.
