NORMAN PARKINSON David Hamilton TERENCE DONOVAN QUEEN February 1962
A gorgeous bejewelled cover of the iconic 60s women's magazine Queen featuring a model wearing designs by cult sixties designer Irene Galitzine photographed by Norman Parkinson. This issue was art directed by David Hamilton.
This must-read issue includes articles by legendary novelist Mary Renault and jazz supremo George Melly, a profile of Frank Sinatra by Robin Douglas-Home, plus a glamorous multi-page fashion shoot by Norman Parkison showing the latest 'mad' fashions from Italy including more avant-garde designs by Galitzine and others. Also inside, a funky London collections fashion spread shot by Terence Donovan.
As with all issues of Queen, this issue includes the usual digest of UK and international culture, film, music, theatre and high society gossip including quirky and irreverent articles
Originally a society magazine 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.
This issue is especially rare as it features the large 'Q' masthead which only appeared on the cover of Queen during 1962.
Good condition for a magazine of this ages with some light creases and marks on the cover and throughout (see images).
