This is the most sought after edition of Nova magazine.   The cover and content amount to what was hot and happening in the seventies.

The cover model was Salvador Dali's longtime muse, Amanda Lear, photographed by Brian Duffy.  Inside, Amanda shows the viewer how to 'strip for your man' in 10. Easy. Steps.  (This fold-out feature is designed to be cut to assemble the individual squares into a mini-movie flick book ...and it is super rare to find this feature still intact!).  7 page feature by Duffy with Amanda wearing designs by Stirling Cooper, Weiss, Clobber, Janet Reger, Jeff Banks and posing with a Verner Panton chair.  


Interview with Roman Polanski, 4 pages, with 3 photographs by Annette Green. 

'Wearing what comes naturally' fashion editorial shot by Peter Knapp (twice the Art Director of the wonderful French Elle during the 1960s and 70s) and styled by Caroline Baker - embroidered smock peasant tops, madras striped cotton battle-dresses, hooded capes and leather sandals shot in Morocco.  One page written by Baker about the shoot in Agadir.

Terence Donovan photographs male models for a feature on men's cosmetics by Penny Vincenzi, 2 pages.

Illustrations by Brian Saunders and Graham McCallum. 

2 page colour ad for Mary Quant make-up.

Rare Chanel '21 Lipsticks' advert, full page and colour. 

David Hillman is the Art Director, Penny Vinenzi Beauty Editor and Caroline Baker Fashion Editor = dream team!
