Check out this post on the Brain Pickings website! Maria Popova has collected some vintage ads for libraries and reading that you won’t want to miss.

As Ms. Popova describes them “delightfully colorful and brimming with endearingly bad copywriting, these mid-century gems exude the same charming literary enthusiasm we’ve previously seen in the reading PSA posters of the WPA era.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Enjoy!

(And don’t miss Ms. Popova’s other post  “Gorgeous Vintage PSA Posters, 1939-1941“)
