But I'm never going to get to all of them!
Watching a couple episodes of Hoarders last night, however, has inspired me to find new ways to tackle the ephemera backlog. So, in addition to continuing onward with regular posts full of fun facts, silly asides and unnecessary footnotes, I'm launching a new feature today.
The FOVAs (Far-Out Vintage Advertisements) will be quick posts in which the image is the star. Most of these are from old magazine tear sheets. I'll keep the text minimal and let you enjoy these — for the design, for the humor, for the nostalgia. (Please share your thoughts and memories in the comments section.)
I plan to post one of these every afternoon, giving you a new reason to come back daily.
Here's FOVA #1...
