I’ve always had a fascination with vintage magazine covers. I love that they can be timeless in a sense, but very much become a sliver of the era. The fashions, the headlines, the celebrities of the moment. I just can’t get enough. (I even have old Vogue prints in my apartment!) With all of the September issues coming out, I always wonder which covers we’ll look back and cringe about and which ones will be more iconic and classic.
While deep within the black hole that is Pinterest (duh), I stumbled on a handful of old Seventeen covers. Obsessed. Then I found myself in an even deeper black hole looking at old covers and old scans of articles. It’s really funny how some things have (and definitely have not) changed. Seventeen was the first “teen” magazine when it went into publication in 1944.
Anyone else loving the vintage magazine covers?!
