While marketing is not something that normally excites me, I do find advertising a fascinating subject both because I dislike being bombarded by it and because I can't resist examining really creative and really bad advertising. This post, Read between the Ps: Tradition Marketing: Fantasy Coffins from Ghana,
from an Indian blog that covers a wide variety of highly creative international advertising and marketing ideas, just shouldn't be missed. The author, Puru Gupta, has a real eye for the strange, quirky, and beautiful, and while some of the posts deal with western advertising (try Fieldvertising in Germany
), they are truly wide-ranging and include great photos.
