Life Of The Party - A Visual History Of S.S. Adams - Book
those of us who believed the Adams catalog gave us a passport into social
success for the coming adult world, The Life of the Party is a revelation.
The slogan 'fool your friends' was especially inviting to those of us
who didn't have friends. I still remember the pain of actually pulling
these pranks (sorry about the Rubber Pencil, Grandma Frieda). A wonderfully
obsessive compilation. This is as painful and hypnotic as a book of broken
book? This book is a JOKE. When I opened it, it played a trick on me:
instead of a breezy light-hearted look at novelties, it buzzed in my head
and revealed itself as the heartbreaking secret history of twentieth century
America that it actually is. Oh, and it's gorgeous too. Tricked again."
Established in 1906, the S.S. Adams Company pioneered the prank and magic industry.
