Book Description

25 Nov 2010

MAD MEN: THE ILLUSTRATED WORLD is an engaging celebration of the life and times of the 'mad men' of Madison Avenue in the early 1960s. This book is by turns funny, kitschy, sophisticated and wry, and this full colour miscelleny is both a memento and a stand-alone salute to the time of slim suits, prosperity, cocktails, and the golden age of advertising.

With chapters on the office, the home, fashion and beauty, mainstream and counterculture, travel and rainy day activities, this all-encompassing anthology is the only companion a fan will ever need.

The only official MAD MEN publication, this tie-in to the wildly popular and cult television series captures the spirit of the era as it might be imagined on one of Sal Ramano's storyboards.

Review

Mad Men: The Illustrated World takes that nostalgia and plays with it, acknowledging the show's vision even as it builds something new ... a witty amalgamation of retro drawings, background information and knowing takes on the show's period feel. .. Best of all, however, are Dyna Moe's drawings themselves ... the illustrator's quirky humour shines through. (INDEPENDENT)

a fun, tongue-in-cheek look at a world that millions have become engrossed with. Staying on the right side of comedic, the book offers a witty, engaging and funny look at the various aspects of the lives of the show's characters. Beautifully illustarted this will make the perfect gift for any fan of the show this Christmas. (ENTERTAINMENT FOCUS)

how about this to put in your loved one's stocking? ... Mad Men: The Illustrated World is definitely something to peruse during a four-Martini lunch (CAMPAIGN)

the perfect accompaniment to the series (BELFAST TELEGRAPH)

An essential purchase for fans of the show (ALTERNATIVE MAGAZINE ONLINE)

I only received this marvellous book today, so first impressions only. I discovered Ms Moes artwork on Flickr a couple of years ago, and even used one of her "Mad Men Me" avatars on last.fm for a while too. Not only can she draw, she can write too.
The book is almost a Mad Men Annual, if you can imagine such a thing. Sublimely witty illustrations, and subtley amusing content, with lots of injokes. It takes a 21st century look at early sixties values, fashions and lifestyle, with it's tongue firmly in cheek. Has all those cocktail recipes you crave, the secret to a great bouffant, and a wonderful Joan Harris dress up doll (what more could you want?).
Now get me an 'old fashioned' will you?

5.0 out of 5 stars Mad about Mad Men and this book 16 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Remember the television tie-in annuals you used to get as a kid?

Basically this is one for you as an adult!

The Illustrated World has all the fun of the show, with some fantastic art work. Don't be fooled however in thinking this is a book of scripts or a illustrated novel though, it is just simply a fun companion that I am sure anyone who loves Mad Men will love.

A must for all Maddicts!
