MAD MEN: THE ILLUSTRATED WORLD is an engaging celebration of the life and times of the 'mad men' of Madison Avenue in the early 1960s. This book is by turns funny, kitschy, sophisticated and wry, and this full colour miscelleny is both a memento and a stand-alone salute to the time of slim suits, prosperity, cocktails, and the golden age of advertising.With chapters on the office, the home, fashion and beauty, mainstream and counterculture, travel and rainy day activities, this all-encompassing anthology is the only companion a fan will ever need.The only official MAD MEN publication, this tie-in to the wildly popular and cult television series captures the spirit of the era as it might be imagined on one of Sal Ramano's storyboards.

As swingin' as the 1960s-an officially licensed tie-in to the wildly popular hit television series Mad Men
By turns fun, sophisticated, and celebratory, this is an eye-popping and inventive companion to the hit show Mad Men, as well as a salute to the era of cocktails and Camelot. Inspired by the artistic styles that defined 1960s advertising, Dyna Moe creates a candy-colored record of the time, exploring such topics as:
· The office culture, including secretary etiquette and hangover workarounds
· The cocktail craze, with Sally Draper's cocktail menu
· Pastimes and fads, such as Pete and Trudy's dancing lessons and Bert Cooper's art
· '60s icons from Jackie to Marilyn
· Boardroom and bedroom shenanigans
· The burgeoning suburban lifestyle
· Fabulous fashion, including hairstyle how-tos and bonus paper dolls of Joan
