Norman Parkinson JEAN SHRIMPTON Fabiola Queen magazine UK January 1961


Default Title

The Queen magazine from January 1961.

Fashion photography inside by Norman Parkinson, featuring an early appearance of the soon to be supermodel, Jean Shrimpton!  The Shrimp can be seen in a wicker cane hanging egg shaped chair.

Features also include Princess Margaret & Lord Snowdon attending the wedding of King Baudouin and Queen Fabiola in Brussels. 

Originally a society magazine started in 1861. In the early 50s, editor Jocelyn Steven bought the magazine in 1958 and shifted the format, content and readership to turn Queen into one of the most iconic publications of its time. Working with Beatrix Miller, Norman Parkinson and later Helmut Newton, Queen became a definitive bible for all things 60s.

Very good condition for a magazine of this age with some light marks and creases (see images).
