Was lucky enough to get a peek or two ,
- pretty Dark Art in there, I learned ..

Well, one has to start early, always
digging deep - and trying to hang on..

That can make some journeys hilarious ,
as we got to know !

Always a pleasure being at your wings ,

Best, hs

Next time I might give you another peek…! ;) [nt]

Your Vintage time travel about Ads and Art is a keeper, a very nice reference , smile)
- but also a pleasure to read and look at !!

( Some I had known, eg from Marv's also great post about 'A Journey Through Vintage Ads'
- maybe a nice further read and some on the 'Éloge du Temps from Nicolas ' ..

-- but you had another focus, slightly other twist and add'l context).
ENJOYABLE , indeed !! smile)

Thanks for again a very nice effort,
Your Series on the way to becoming a sort of Classic,

- .. Keep them coming please !

Best, hs

Indeed, Marv has a stunning selection of ads!

These are really great examples of illustration and graphic design. A lost art.

Truly a lost art!

 
 By: blomman Mr Blue : July 18th, 2011-06:03

Nowadays it’s most about beautiful people…

 

Don’t get me wrong – I do like to look at beautiful people, but the artwork is not the same anymore.

Thank you, Le Chef!

Thanks Blomman, great series and this addition is

 
 By: timerider : July 17th, 2011-10:31

a real topper for me. Ads from my birth year and wedding year. It is still amazing how the ads pull one in, take you back and still marvel at how great these watches look. You have also reminded me to revive my Vintage watches, waiting patiently for some time in the sun.

Great joy in reading,
many thanks,
Tim

Tim, please give your vintage watches some fun in the sun…

 
 By: blomman Mr Blue : July 18th, 2011-06:13

And take a lot of pics for us to see!

My pleasure – happy you enjoy!

 

And even more happy if you revive your vintage (with or without pics).
