Great Books & DVDs for Retromaniacs

A Listmania! list by marciamarciamarcia "gadget geek, doodler & photographer" (Massachusetts, USA)
The list author says: "I'm obsessed with mid-century modern style, whether it's in architecture, furniture, fashion or greeting cards. I collect magazines, books & ephemera from the 1950s and 1960s, scan them and put them on my website (Velma's Retro Clip Art and Images). After I've scanned them, I cut images/text out of magazines to make greeting cards, zines, collages, etc.

And let's not forget those fun tv shows and cartoons. I won't get into the movies--at least not here. But, I hope you enjoy this list!"
