With Apollo in flight, in September 1966 Scientific American magazine published a special issue devoted to the subject of information, pulling in a wealth of specially-made advertising.

This book edits down the ads, preserving just images and a few telling words, to distil the advertisers’ air of wonder and promise (or sometimes poorly-disguised fear of imminent obsolesence).
