some things never change

Duke University's Digital Scriptorium provides a collection of advertisements from way back. This one is from the "Medicine and Madison Avenue" collection. Pretty interesting considering how the FDA is currently whining about not being able to keep up with all the drug ads on the tube. At any rate, there's tons of stuff here to keep one busy for hours. I like looking at the layout of the ads - gives me ideas for current ads and layouts I need to do.

Venus-Adonis Electric Normalizer, 1950.

Ab Energizer, 2002. The design is sleeker, and it uses electrical shocks instead of pistons, but it's basically exactly the same concept as the Venus-Adonis Electric Normalizer.
