The not for profit foundation the International Advertising & Design DataBase was founded in 2014 in the Netherlands as an hommage to Dr Sachs and carries on where he, due to the circumstances of the times, had to stop.
It is the goal of the Foundation to publicize as much information as possible through the IADDB and to ask the public to actively participate by adding images, names, dates and all other kinds of information.
As a first project the IADDB will put on line a number of scarce advertising and design magazines. Than a wealth of posters and other advertising material will follow as well as an index to artists names, biographies and signatures.
