Watching Doug Pray’s documentary Art & Copy spurred my current musing on the creative behind vintage ads. With their colorful illustrations and sing-song copy, these food brand ads boast a yesteryear charm I definitely want seconds of.
I became instantly fascinated upon finding these full-color ads in a thrifted Look Magazine from 1961. Known for helping kick-start a young Stanley Kubrick’s career after he sold a series of photographs to the publication, Look continued to visually please its audience with brilliant imagery – even in its ads – until it ceased publication in 1971. Proof that ‘spam’ can, sometimes, be a good thing? You tell us.
