THE COLLECTING OF MAGAZINE COVER ART IS INTRIGUINGIN THE SENSE OF "THE FIND" AND ALSO "THE BRAG"... BEING IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD - EPHEMERAL, MOST MAGAZINES WHERE NOT INTENDED FOR LONG TERM SURVIVAL.STARTING WITH THE FIRST MAG (ie:The Gentleman's Magazine, first published in1731, in London,considered to have been the first general-interest magazine) MOST WERE READ, + REREAD AS THEY WERE PASSED ALONG BUT EVENTUALLY MOST WOULD END UP IN THE TRASH OR THE SCRAP PAPER BUYERS CART... AND SO THE ENJOYMENT OF COLLECTION MAGAZINES AND THEIR SUPERLATIVE COVER ART BEGAN.

WARS, HATE MONGERS, BOOK BINDERS, SCRAP DRIVES, RODENTS, MOLD AND FIRE HAVE TAKEN THEIR TOLL UPON SURVIVAL... ALONG WITH FLOODS, TORNADOESAND OTHER NATURAL DISASTERS WHICH CONTINUALLY REDUCE THE AVAILABLE NUMBER OF COLLECTIBLE COVERS TO ENJOY, PURCHASE AND SHOW OFF..

AS WITH ALL EPHEMERA - CONDITION SCARCITY, CONDITION, DESIRABILITY, CONDITION, AND.... DID I MENTION ... CONDITION... ARE THE PRIME FACTORS INVOLVED IN PRICE..

PERFECT COVER ARE IS RARE --- AND PRICED ACCORDINGLY !

MOST COVERS PRIOR TO 1880 WERE PRINTED ON ACID FREE PAPER... AFTER THAT PAPER QUALITY CONTINUES TO DECLINE..

IT IS ALWAYS BEST TO USED ACID - FREE STORAGE + MOUNTING PRACTICES IN COLLECTING MAG COVERS..
