A book about the classic Avis campaign of the 60s. Henri Holmgren & Per Eriksson.
Exactly what it says - replete with all the ads (both press and TV), a history of the corporation, of the ad campaign, interviews with all the key players: Krone, Paula Green, Joe Daly, David Herzbrun, Robert Townsend. A beautifully produced book which contributed heavily to the Avis chapter of 'Helmut Krone. The book.'
