9781853754401: Love at First Light: Smoker Romance in the Classic Age of Advertising (Ad Nauseum)

In days gone by, no movie star or media magnet would be caught dead without a cigarette. Smoking was sophisticated, exotic, sensual, decadent, and, above all, it promised romance. Advertising told us that smoking would make us irresistible to the opposite sex. Love at First Light offers a look at the sexual play of the cigarette ad from the 1920s to the 1960s. Ranging from the blatantly hokey to the vaguely disturbing, sexual innuendo is never far away.

From the Publisher:

These kitschy, side–splitting collections of old ads, magazine covers, and book jackets are designed for instant dispatch to friends, family, and loved ones. Each book contains 31 full–color postcards from The Advertising Archives—the most comprehensive image library of its kind in Europe. Little albums of suppressed memories from the Classic Age of Advertising.
