[Book Nerd Links] 12 Vintage Advertisements Starring Famous Authors

  1. I’d like to think Seamus Heaney introduced Robert Ludlum to Guinness but my favourite has to be the Frederick Forsyth ad – ‘cos I loved the tweed jacket/roll neck look back then 😉

      I have not decided on a favourite yet, although I have a major weakness for Mickey Spillane.

      More men should rock the tweed jacket/roll neck look. I’d be totally okay with that. 🙂
