Book Look: Ad Boy

Here's a great book I came across recently."Ad Boy: Vintage Advertising with Character" is a collection of various ad characters that graced many consumer goods' packages during the 1950's, 60's and 70's. The vintage illustrations and designs are indeed a great resource for any illustrator, graphic designer, advertising enthusiast and/or nostalgia buff.The book was put together by Warren Dotz: a pop culture historian, collector, designer and author of eight advertising art books, and Masud Husain: a graphic designer, branding specialist and avid collector of American advertising ephemera.For more great vintage illustration by these creative people, visit their blog here:
