Monday’s ad is for Schlitz, from 1958. Actually, it’s an advertising piece — a pamphlet or brochure — from their wonderful ad campaign, one of my all-time favorites, Schlitzerland. This piece, entitled Schlitzerland, U.S.A., or how to entertain Schlitzfriends,” gives advice, along with songs, or how to throw various types of parties successfully. This is the cover, and we’ll be exploring their advice over the next week or so. I so love the illustrations.
Highly innovative ads for the time for sure – too bad the beer wasn’t.
