Oh what great selection. I will get back to this later. I’m a big admirer of mid-century graphic-design, as you can see on my blog.

Any credit for the lettering on the Evergreen Review?

The first image in the series “Harper’s Bazaar” was a reminder of the film “Funny Face” (1957). It inspired us to do a new blog post.

Loraine,
I've looked high and low for a credit for the great lettering on the EVERGREEN cover, but, alas, not been able to locate any info... sorry.

Co-Ed Magazine doesn't seem to be able to make up its mind -- is it for high schoolers, college students, or "career girls"?

There's a wonderful human, made-by-hand quality about these pre-computer relics of yesterday's 'Today.'

I can't tell if the woman on the Japanese cover is playing the harmonica, snorting cocaine, or adjusting her contact lens. Can anyone translate the typography?

Thanks for the "soul" injection with today's 'Today' Eric.
