20th Century Alcohol & Tobacco Ads

When it says the 20th Century, it mostly means "Early" 20th Century, but nevertheless, 20th Century Alcohol & Tobacco Ads is a mind-bending look at the history of selling vice. From doctors recommending cigs to calm your nerves to ads recommending liquor as a success elixir, it documents all the humorous — and often unsavory — ways we've been pitched a slow death over the years. It weighs in at nearly 400 pages of sin and is required reading for anyone who's ever smoked, drank, or lived.
