The incredible vintage advertising/advertisementsin each issue makes these awesome for those whom deal in vintage advertising. For people who want to frame the ads themselves, they can select wonderful ads to help set off a retro/recreation or theme room. Great for a 'collector'Forpeople whom restore vintage automobilesyou'll like having these vintage ads ofyour favorite cars/accessories (radios, gas companies, etc.) Life Magazine was published weekly from 1936 to the late 1960's...then on a monthly basis. Because of this it is focused on a very specific time frame, with current news of the day. What else can you give someone that will show/remind them what was happening in the world during that special time frame? Many of my customers have purchased Life Magazine with articles and photos about themselves,family members or their organizations. I have sold to the Boxing Hall of Fame (Atlanta) local Museums in8 USstates, The Hard Rock Vault in Orlando, and to a big shot in Israel Army (Whom was on the cover!) Plus numerous others whom wish to remain anonymous.>
Life magazine is one of the world's most recognizable publications. From 1936 to 1972 the weekly publication of Life served as the nation's foremost authority on cultural trends and the state of the American experience. It ceased publication until 1978, when it returned as a monthly until the year 2000. Since then Life has returned as a weekly, published in 70 newspapers across the nation. The company is also well-known for its many books on photography, writing and, in conjunction with Time, many self-help and 'how to' volumes.
Life magazine continues to be one of the most important publications in the country, both for its current issues as well as its back catalog. Researchers, designers, and the simply curious use Life magazine as a reference for style, trends, celebrity news, as well as the award-winning photography that first made the publication famous. By now there is hardly anybody in the United States who isn't familiar with both the logo (white lettering on a red rectangle) as well any number of photographs first published in the magazine, like the famous V-Day kiss in Times Square.
Life magazine is dedicated to continuing its place in American publication history, and back issues of the magazine can fetch considerable figures if in good condition. The magazine has gone from being simply another magazine to a sought-after collectible. Collections of Life magazine are often found at sale.
Where Life will go in the future is unknown, but its resiliency has proven to be formidable, and most experts agree that Life will remain an iconic, growing force in American culture for years to come.
