Mad Men Season 6 Starts April 7, and...

Juxtapoz // Saturday, January 26, 2013
... We want to take this opportunity to mention that we should cherish the art direction and creative promotion that this show has given the world over the past half decade. Even if you don't watch Mad Men, and could care less, there aren't many television shows that have ever paid attention to the details of marketing and stylzing itself to an audience. This is an art project. Look at these promo shots for Season 6, which begins on April 7, 2013 on AMC? Well. Done.
