Vintage Magazine Cover Inspiration

Marion Davies Screenland April 1930 Magazine Cover Photo. Look at that sheen in the legs, and the teensie feet in white satin slippers, with the puff ball boa. Sitting in a cloud.

Vogue, 1926 Artist: Eduardo Garcia Benito. What a masthead and the butterfly is heavenly!

Life Magazine, October 9, 1913 Artist: R.M. Crosby. Absolutely inspired by the soft colours in this.

Vogue Magazine, April 1918 - Tres chic

Vanity Fair Magazine, July 1916

Eyeful Magazine by pin-up artist Peter Driben. Do I need to explain why this made the grade on this page? Great illustration, typography and funny title.

Charm Magazine, July 1947. Love the layout, and the ladylike innocence of this cover.

Pictorial Review Magazine Artist: Earl Christy. I included this one because of the softness of the cheeks and ornamental head dress, as well as that delightful pink and orange colour in the feathers.

Harpers Bazaar Magazine - not sure of the year, but a great shot and layout.
V Magazine September 1948 - Love the tomato red with the knocked back saturation of the model.
