Between the hot weather and the big holiday, I've had reason to keep posts on the short side this week. In a similar spirit, this refrigerator ad from 1961 cuts right to the chase. Artist Jacques Auriac featured a rather haute summer pairing of lobster and Champagne in his ultra cool graphic design. I'm impressed by how much is conveyed—with a minimum of words—about the appliance.
