No Ipad Here

I can get lost in back issues of magazines. With modern day technology, you can very easily get a copy of your favorite magazine to your tablet and call it a day.  Nothing, is more stunning than the actual reading of an archived issue of a magazine.  The yellowing aged paper and the faded ads of yesteryear. Take a look at a few images I snapped from archived issues of Town & Country.

Vintage Vogue

Recently, I took a trip to the archives of my Alma Mater F.I.T. to view their enormous periodical sections. I took in quite a few archived issues of Vogue and came across quite covers with ladies of color.

August 1974 Beverly Johnson

August 1977 Peggy Dillard

March 1980 Sheila Johnson

1982 Shari Belafonte

Aaaah, these ladies are iconic images of beauty across the board just beautiful, stunning women.
