Magazine Covers – 1970-1979
This post continues to look at Magazine Covers throughout the decades. 1970-1979 contains hundreds of items and as usual it was difficult choosing these few to feature.
I begin with this gem from 1970, the beautifully produced, polite propaganda, Soviet Life. We have a number of full issues in our periodical collection from the late 60’s, early 70’s, and early 80’s.
And from the idealism of Lenin we move onto the eroticism of Lennon in Avant Garde magazine which is also available in our periodicals no.1(1968:Jan.)-no.14(1971:summer).
This is a strange one, the “urban renaissance” issue of this defunct inflight magazine from US Airways. “Mainliner Magazine” sounds like something for the heroine chic crowd.
Magazine Covers 1960-1969
We continue our look at magazine covers throughout the decades with a diverse smattering from the 1960’s. We start off with some teen magazines (teen magazines, much like the teenagers, were invented in the 1950’s and really came into their own in the 1960’s).
We have many nice film magazine from the 1950’s forward, here are a few:
The French sure love their cinema.
An early edition of L’Esprit Créateur: The International Quarterly of French and Francophone Studies.
A couple titanic Fortune Magazines (of which we have many from the 1940’s on).
A couple of our Graphic Design and Art covers:
A trio of the ever elegant Met Bulletin Covers:
And an exceedingly shiny Harper’s Bazaar cover:
