Bert Stern : original mad man by Bert Stern( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bert Stern: original mad man is the definitive voyage into the life and work of one of the greatest American photographers of all time. An original Madison Avenue "mad man," Stern's images helped create modern advertising; his ground-breaking campaign for Smirnoff forever changed the industry. The iconic photos he took of celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Audrey Hepburn, Shirley MacLaine, Sophia Loren, Twiggy, and the infamous Lolita image from Kubrick's film, minted Stern - along with Irving Penn and Richard Avedon - as a celebrity in his own right. Indeed, his photos from Monroe's "Last Sitting" are considered to be the ultimate images of the 20th century icon. After marrying legendary ballet dancer and Balanchine muse Allegra Kent, the kid from Brooklyn was sitting on top of the world ... until a dramatic fall from grace. Featuring Bert Stern, Allegra Kent, Twiggy Lawson, Jerry Della Femina, Judith Crist, George Wein & more

In the late 19th century, the trickle of Italian immigrants to America turned into a flood.

The newcomers clustered in urban ghettos, creating "Little Italys" from New York to San Francisco

MADBOY : beyond mad men by Richard Kirshenbaum( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A thrilling and irreverent memoir about the transformation of the advertising business from the 1980s to today. Richard Kirshenbaum was born to sell. Raised in a family of Long Island strivers, this future advertising titan was just a few years old when his grandfather first taught him that a Cadillac is more than a car, and that if you can't have a Trinitron you might as well not watch TV. He had no connections when he came to Madison Avenue, but he possessed an outrageous sense of humor that would make him a millionaire. In 1987, at the age of twenty-six, Richard put his savings on the line to launch his own agency with partner Jonathan Bond, and within a year, had transformed it from a no-name firm into the go-to house for cutting-edge work. Kirshenbaum and Bond pioneered guerilla marketing by purchasing ad space on fruit, spray-painting slogans on the sidewalk, and hiring actors to order the Hennessy martini in nightclubs. They were the bad boys of Madison Avenue-a firm where a skateboarding employee once bowled over an important client-but backed up their madness with results. Packed with business insight, marketing wisdom, and a cast of characters ranging from Princess Diana to Ed McMahon, this memoir is as bold, as breathtaking, and as delightful as Richard himself
