Beginning of the End

MMS7_Key Art Credit Milton GlaserAMCFinally, something that doesn’t involve zombies, biker gangs, or meth dealers—that’s right, the last season of Mad Men is upon us. Or at least the first part of the end, in a Deathly Hallows sort of way.

The artwork was produced by ’60s graphic designer Milton Glaser. It’s obviously late 1960s, with a sort of Peter Max-Age of Aquarius-bacchanal feel to it. And no, I have no idea what I’m talking about. Are there any clues in it? What is this woman drinking? Blood? It’s too light. Poison? A champagne cocktail? Her skin is the color of money. Okay, enough. It’s getting close to 1970. Things will get ugly. April 13 can’t come soon enough.
