A Coke and a Smile -- The 1953 Annual from the Art Director's Club of Atlanta

I have purchased books from several local estates recently ... I was lucky enough to find two copies of this insanely rare book. It is a 1953 Second Annual by the Art Director's Club of Atlanta. What makes it particularly interesting? Art work, illustrations and more tying in to Atlanta places and products ... specifically Coca Cola. A number of beautiful Coca Cola advertisements in early form, with artists' attributions here. Really, really nice.
