This 1957 Ford Taunus (that’s Ford of Germany, but the brochure is Dutch) brochure illustration is really a wonderfully-rendered bit of mid-century advertising art, with the car rendered with a style that’s somehow both loose and precise. I love it. I also love the way the suitcase-laden dude back there has the perfect stooped, slack-jawed, gibbon-armed look of someone who has just been hauling a lot of heavy-ass suitcases and has just been told that, no, actually, you can’t drop them here, you need to go up that spiral staircase 16 floors and then up two ladders to find where you can finally set those down. Thanks!
Also, this brochure is one of the only ones I’ve ever seen to actually feature and illustrate one of my favorite bits of lighting equipment: the bi-color parking lamp:
Look how nicely that explains what these things are for: to keep your car from getting smacked into when it’s alone in the dark. Isn’t that something we all want, deep down?
