The martini was and still is more than just a cocktail. This first-of-its-kind book serves up a fabulous cocktail of martini-inspired art, cartoons, collectibles, advertisements, and film stills that reveal how deeply this classic has permeated every aspect of American culture. 150 illustrations, many in color.

I couldn‘t find a #historiography for today‘s #OldCoolBooks prompt, but this cocktail napkin fell from between two books with disintegrating covers, circa 1920 & 1959. The napkin is likely newer, as it is intact at the creases. It‘s got to be at least 15 years old I would think (judging by the bit of subtle sexism).

Tho he has a backward mind;

With his headlight on behind
