This post from "An Affordable Wardrobe" inspired me
to dig this book out of it's hiding place.
It was published in 1964, and designed by Tony Palladino,
who coincidentally taught graphic design at my school.
It seemed pretty funny, back then,
seeing these everyday things printed in a book for the whole world to see.
Especially this page below, which illustrates the perfect position
for angst-ridden sighing & hand wringing.
How to overdress for winter:
And as an added bonus, I found some exposed
"safety film" in the back, from this camera.
OMG that is classic I want that book! Really to funny! OY!
OK, I totally misunderstood what was meant by "enjoy yourself". I thought it meant...nevermind,
break out the ironing board gals...
Oi vay. I need that for some of my friends to kvetch over. sorry for my spelling.
love the "crease" down the pants....
Wow - 1964? Who'd a thunk it?
That does seem pretty hysterically progressive for 1964.
"Put on an Al Jolson record." HA!
omg that is SO funny! I just sent it to my cousin, I hope she enjoys :-)
Sorry posted too fast. Wild book. As I was saying, Oh boy, the hand wringing. I do my fair share of that now with my teens.
Press a fresh crease in his trousers. Hmmm...
That is hysterical!!
