A tribute to and a lament for Marshall McLuhan continues. If he had lived Marshall would have been 100 on July 21, 2011. Join me in the countdown to his centennial, and an exploration of more of his observations on the way media work in the electric age in which we live.

Bless advertising art.

Marshall McLuhan (1969, age 58).  Wonderous to behold!    

“Bless Advertising Art for its PICTORIAL vitality and verbal creativity.”

Me (March, 2011, age 58).  Let’s take a look.

All advertising may not be art, but some definitely is.  Would there were more.

 Cordially, Marshall and Me
