One last item from my 1961 @popmechmag. I was intrigued by this Honda ad. The art direction is superb but the claim is ridiculous. “Rather than invest in the stock market I’m going to buy a moped!” Let’s say this guy invested $700 in Boeing in ‘62. By my calculations, that investment would now be worth over $109,000—not counting any dividends along the way.
It’s almost one of my favorite times of the year. Next week is Banned Books Week. And since this year, the ALA is putting a special emphasis on graphic novels, I have chosen to read Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series this year.
