Vintage Paul Rand Brandy ad

Over the holiday weekend we dedicated a couple of days to cleaning out the office, and Jon accidentally found a bundle of old Paul Rand ads that I had bought off of ebay back in 2000. This Coronet V.S.Q. Brandy ad is one of my favorites, and if you do a search for Paul Rand on ebay you can find several books and ads up for sale. Time to get this one framed and then have Jon remodel the bathroom so we have someplace to hang it. I should probably mention this to Jon at some point.
