But Wait, There's More... by Robert Crawford

Book Description

Catchy phrases, chants at cricket matches and jingles which consumers just can't get out of their heads-the best advertising stands out because it is creative, clever and, most importantly, funny. Advertising in Australia can be traced back to the early 1900s, when spruikers wooed the public with appeals to vanity, health and patriotism. By the time Australia had endured two World Wars, the Depression, economic downturns, political upheavals and direct confrontations, the advertising industry had not only survived, but had become a multi-billion dollar industry, with an enormous influence over people's everyday lives and their spending habits. But Wait, There's More is the first detailed history of the Australian advertising industry, exploring its development over the course of the twentieth century from a disorganised group of individuals selling newspaper space to a multi-billion dollar enterprise run by giant transnationals. It follows the admen and adwomen who worked to convert their audiences into consumers and examines their ongoing quest for legitimacy in the face of new technologies and an increasingly sophisticated and media-savvy audience.

Behind Glass Doors by Robert Crawford Behind Glass Doors, Paperback (November 2016)

Australia's advertising agencies enjoyed their reputation as a glamorous and fun place to work. Not surprisingly, many of the nation's brightest and most creative people were drawn to advertising. Behind Glass Doors ventures into the offices to reveal the inner workings of the Australian advertising business during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.

Book of Iona by Robert Crawford Book of Iona, Hardback (August 2016)

An anthology of fiction, non-fiction and poetry inspired by the isle of Iona.

On Glasgow and Edinburgh by Robert Crawford On Glasgow and Edinburgh, Paperback (November 2015)

A mere forty miles apart, these cities have enjoyed a rivalry since wistful Edinburgh lost parliamentary sovereignty and defiant Glasgow came into its industrial promise. Crawford brings them to life between the covers of one book, in a tale that mixes novelty and familiarity, as Scotland s cultural capital and largest commercial city do."
