Merry Christmas and Happy New Year – From All of Us to All of You
The magic of the winter night
Christmas is around the corner and to celebrate this magical Holiday we are featuring a few samples of Christmas related advertisements and images from between 1946 and 1964, courtesy of the collection of Roger Wilkerson.
To me, the hand drawn illustrations and images in mid-century advertisements are the epitomy of style. It shows how talented advertising America were some 50-60 years ago. That fine attention to design and pseudo-realism really grabs me.
So, from all of us, to all of you – Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah and Happy New Year! What is Santa Claus bringing you this Christmas?
