Man About Town – cover call

Man About Town magazine cover

Man About Town magazine cover Autumn 1958

Man About Town, along with Queen, Nova and London Life was part of  the revolution that changed the way magazines were edited and designed in the 1960. An email landed last week caused some disruption at Magforum.com. There’s a case study on Town magazine  and a page of what I thought were all the Man About Town covers.  But I was wrong. What I thought was January 1963 was, in fact, Christmas 1962 – a 13th issue for the year.

Dating issues at the end and beginning of a year can be ticky because the January issue will usually be published in December or even November, so the copyright for January 1963 will be 1962. If the year is not on the cover, confusion can result.

Anybody got a scan I could use of the January 1963 Town cover?
