Psychedelic Advertising

Dubonnet 1968

More discoveries on my seemingly endless travels through old magazines… The fact that nobody bothers to create such works of art as these [for the mere purpose of advertising] anymore is everything that is wrong with the modern world. In my opinion. The Woolworths Babydoll make-up advert is a DOUBLE page spread. It’s so exciting to see and, if I could, I would most certainly go and buy up armfuls of it right now. And surely that’s the point of advertising?

  1. I'd definately have been tempted to have started drinking Dubonnet (minus the ground up beetles) and shopped at Woolworths if they'd printed those adverts today. Aren't they glorious? xxx

    Hmm I've never had Dubonnet, get the feeling it would be kinda gross. Gorgeous ads tho – hadn't seen the face age Baby Doll one.

  4. EXCELLENT! I just bought a bottle of Dubonnet last week as I've never tasted it before. Still haven't cracked it open but seeing this I now have high hopes! xx

    Wow the Wrangler one's spectacular. I don't know if you're into comic art – but it's worth checking some of Jim Steranko's work – he broke boundaries with his Psych designs and panels..few here for youNick FuryScorpioSupergirls
