One of my most popular posts is the one that features old school ads that today, well, they would never even be published!

We are all familiar with the idea that things from long ago are no longer acceptable, but some of these ads aren’t that old!

Sexist, bigoted, inappropriate, they offer an interesting insight into the world of the past. So interesting in fact, that no less a lumiary as Charles Saatchi has just released a book ‘celebrating’ this burgeoning art form!

So without further ado, here are some examples from the new book Beyond Belief by Charles Saatchi.

Beyond Belief

I first came across these images on a Buzzfeed post by Matt Tucker.
