Humorous risque brochure from the Mad Men era of office politics and shenanigans. In its 24 pages of racy photographs and none-too-subtle innuendo, we glimpse an office where nice gams, some show of cleavage and a shapely derrier are all a young woman needs for advancement, where everything is about the perks, the outward displays of rank, and who has time for the actual grind? The brochure's tone is really a print-form version of one of those movie shorts from the forties or fifties in which a jovial, all-knowing narrator has a wisecrack or punchline for each of the succession of small mishaps that relate to a single theme of modern life, and of course the collision of office politics and sex was the raw material for such successful comedic treatments as "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" and not a few Jayne Mansfield or Marilyn Monroe vehicles. A great conceit of this brochure is that in none of the photographs is a face shown. Thus everything is captured in the anatomy south of the neck. Other than a little ink scribble on the rear cover, this is clean and tight. The brochure is 15 by 11.5 cm, or 6 by 4.25 inches.
