“One of the best ways to learn the craft of advertising and stay inspired is by going through advertising annuals. Experienced creatives swear by ad annuals like One Show, D&AD, ADC, and the likes of them.
But, unfortunately, vintage advertising annuals are not easily accessible by many, especially young creatives who are exploring the craft.
Not anymore though. I’ve scoured the depths of the internet and compiled a folder of legally digitized advertising annuals from the 1930s to the 2010s, courtesy of the Internet Archive.
Feel free to download/bookmark as you please.” – A D
