Scrabble The Beautiful Word

Mattel word game, Scrabble, is promoted as The Beautiful Game in this set of weird and wonderful print advertisements from Ogilvy & Mather, Paris. Six print advertisements, Beast, Condom, Vampire, Nurse, Hula and Buddha, show sketched drawings connecting with each other, in the same way that words must connect with one another on the Scrabble board.
