Dubonnet 1968

More discoveries on my seemingly endless travels through old magazines… The fact that nobody bothers to create such works of art as these [for the mere purpose of advertising] anymore is everything that is wrong with the modern world. In my opinion. The Woolworths Babydoll make-up advert is a DOUBLE page spread. It’s so exciting to see and, if I could, I would most certainly go and buy up armfuls of it right now. And surely that’s the point of advertising?

  1. I'd definately have been tempted to have started drinking Dubonnet (minus the ground up beetles) and shopped at Woolworths if they'd printed those adverts today. Aren't they glorious? xxx

  2. "We knew the fun was about to beginWhen Laura got blind on Dubonnet and ginAnd scratched her veneer with a Cartier pinI couldn't have liked it more!"- Noel Coward.This is where I mainly know of Dubonnet from!!
