Reviews - What do customers think about 60s Fashion: Vintage Fashion and Beauty Ads (Taschen Icon Series)?

Great review of 60's cultural history  Jul 18, 2008
I love this book! It's a great review of the culture of the 60's from the early portion of the decade which still had influences of the 50's to the mod and psychadelic fashions and fads of the latter end of the decade.
 
Fun even if you weren't around in the 60s  Aug 29, 2007
Except for a few pages in front giving a brief overview of the era, this book is full of bright, gorgeous ads from the 60s with no additional text. Mostly makeup, hair care, and other products for women, but with a decent amount of men's and children's ads as well.
It was amazing to see all the models who don't look like they were sculpted out of plastic (wrinkles! stray hairs! thick, clumped on mascara!) who still managed to look fabulous.
And going through the ads and counting the companies that are still around today was fun.
Some of the ads are just odd- Pond's Angel Face, tint your face to match your fashions! Centaur Cologne, massage it into your loins!
The best thing about this book was sharing it with older relatives and coworkers- they all LOVED it. It would be an excellent gift for a woman who remembers the 60s. I'm buying the one featuring ads from the 70s next, and hoping for a future book with ads from the 80s.

My only complaint is that the binding is coming loose after quite a bit of handling.
