This outrageous collection of inappropriate ads will have you turning the pages and shaking your head in disbelief. Outdated Advertising: Memories from a Less-than-PC Era takes a look at print advertising from the mid-1850s through the 1980s with an eye toward ads that were notorious for their sexist, racist, politically-incorrect, or other wildly inappropriate content--or for just plain bad taste. Advertising has changed over the decades--that is a major understatement. Despite the nostalgia of such shows as Mad Men, the outrageous images in Outdated Advertising show readers just how far we've come since then.
