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.

My favorite part about old ads like this is the typeface they choose!
In my art class, we had to cut up vintage National Geographics from the sixties and seventies. There were always these beautiful colorful ads for vacations to exotic places! I really hated cutting up those magazines.
