AceJet, a lovely blog of found art and typography, tipped me off to this amazing set of 1950s and 60’s magazine ads for science and techonology companies. More than 180 ads showcasing the beauty and abstract qualities of modernist design can be found here on Flickr, posted by BustBright. I clicked through every example, awed by the impact, simplicity, and straightforward intelligence of the graphics. They aren’t trying to sell a temporary disposable lifestyle, they’re previewing an entire future.
