Retrotisements: Back to School Edition, Part 2

One thing that stinks about being an adult is that I don’t get summers off anymore. One thing that rules about being an adult is I don’t have to deal with the looming threat of Back to School time. So you see, now I can look at vintage back-to-school advertisements with joy and amusement, not dread. And now you can too. Enjoy!

    In the Greyhound ad, did anyone notice the next passenger’s magazine the young lady is glancing over at? I see that famous rabbit logo and a mention of Shel Silverstein on the spine – it MUST be Playboy! In 1960 Playboy was making an effort to be literary and fashionable. She appears to approve . . do you think that was likely back then? Do you think it’s more or less likely today, in a post-Gloria-Steinem world with a post-full-nudity Playboy?
