Thanks to Scribd I have a whole bunch of these things.This whole series that Gretsch did had a super-fine Modernist eye putting them together. So many are so good, and they stand up today. You know 'em: Max, Elvin, Art Taylor. They were from before my time, but arriving to the Gretsch party a little later (late 70's/early 80's) and discovering these 60's gems in old Downbeats, well, they became quite inspiring to me. And then they started getting reproduced in books about the drum companies, and other vintage drum books.
If anyone here is familiar with those award-winning 60's black and white Volkswagen ads, it almost seems like they could have the same visual art designers.
