I can’t tell you how much I love these covers of Modern Mechanix, Popular Science, and their illustrated contemporaries. There’s something fascinating about the concept of the future in the eyes of a 1950’s audience, not to mention the amount of breathless, wide-eyed hope and anticipation. Here are some favourites:
1. Pressed for space? Add a wardrobe to your kitchen!
2. ‘The Dangerous Truth About Petting’
3. The salad spinners of yesterday are the mass transit vehicles of tomorrow.
4. Ladies and gentlemen, ‘The Female Penis’.
