Mad Men. Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Price Logos.

I am a huge Mad Men fan, and I am a little disappointed that the 2011 season is getting pushed back to 2012 due to “Creative Differences” between the lead writer/series creator, and the producers. If the show gets delayed my summer TV viewing is pretty much shot. On a brighter note over on Tumblr, Fredrick Samuel and friends have launched a little Mad Men project to see what the Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Price logo would look like with todays agencies. Below are a few, the rest are here and well worth the visit.

Madmen Illustrated.

I’m a huge fan of the TV show Madmen. I still have last season on my DVR so I can watch episodes at my leisure this winter and have a little Madmen fix when I need it. So last night while cruising through Amazon I discovered this.

Mad Men: The Illustrated World, by Dyna Moe

This fun illustrated paperback takes a look at the culture of the ’60s through the lens of the hit AMC show Madmen, offering up important information like drink recipes, women’s hairstyle tips, appetizer menus, and, as an added bonus, paper cutout dolls of everyone’s favorite office manager, Mrs. Joan Harris. The illustrations are great. If you have done the Madmen Yourself on Facebook, or seen any of the Madmen desktop wallpapers for your computer, then you are familiar with Dyna Moe’s style. At $8.50 on Amazon, it’s a must have for the die-hard Madmen fan.
