JANE ASHER Masks Sixties Fashion QUEEN MAGAZINE May 1962
An uber collectable issue of the iconic British women's magazine Queen with a cover featuring actress, author and all round English rose Jane Asher.
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
This issue is especially rare as it features the large 'Q' masthead which only appeared on the cover of Queen during 1962.
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.
Super collectable and rare!
Good condition for a magazine of this age with some creases and marks to the cover and throughout. Scuffing and tears on the spine and cover, especially in the top left hand and bottom right hand corners (see images).
