This all-new book commemorates the one hundredth anniversary of the S.S. Adams Company. Within its pages is a treasury of images that spans the company's first one hundred years of business. Each page is loaded with product photos, original art, promotional materials and rare memorabilia, much of which has never been seen before.

"For those of us who believed the Adams catalog gave us a passport into social success for the coming adult world, The Life of the Party is a revelation. The slogan 'fool your friends' was especially inviting to those of us who didn't have friends. I still remember the pain of actually pulling these pranks (sorry about the Rubber Pencil, Grandma Frieda). A wonderfully obsessive compilation. This is as painful and hypnotic as a book of broken promises."
- Glen David Gold, author of Carter Beats the Devil

"This book? This book is a JOKE. When I opened it, it played a trick on me: instead of a breezy light-hearted look at novelties, it buzzed in my head and revealed itself as the heartbreaking secret history of twentieth century America that it actually is. Oh, and it's gorgeous too. Tricked again."
- Chip Kidd, book cover designer, author of The Cheese Monkeys, and Batman Collected

Established in 1906, the S.S. Adams Company pioneered the prank and magic industry.
