 Life Magazine

Up to the 1970s


Originally a humor and general interest magazine published from 1883 to 1936
. Time founder Henry Luce bought the magazine in 1936 solely so that he could acquire the rights to its name. Luce in turn published a weekly news magazine called Life launched in 1936, with a strong emphasis on photojournalism. Life was published until 1972; as an intermittent "special" until 1978; and as a monthly from 1978 to 2000.

The Henry Luce Life was the first all-photographic American news magazine, and it dominated the market for more than 40 years. The magazine sold more than 13.5 million copies a week at one point and was so popular that President Harry S. Truman, Sir Winston Churchill and General Douglas MacArthur all serialized their memoirs in its pages. Luce purchased the rights to the name from the publishers of the first Life but sold its subscription list and features to another magazine; there was no editorial continuity between the two publications.

Perhaps one of the best-known pictures printed in the magazine was Austin Dunning’s photograph of a nurse in a sailor’s arms, snapped on August 27, 1945, as they celebrated VJ Day in New York City. The magazine's place in the history of photojournalism is considered its most important contribution to publishing.

Life was wildly successful for two generations before its prestige was diminished by economics and changing tastes. Since 1972, Life has twice ceased publication and resumed in a different form, before ceasing once again with the issue dated April 20, 2007. The brand name continues on the Internet and in occasional special issues.

The Life magazines all featured great photos of world events and people.

The history of the world (and locally) is shown through photographs

and each issue was filled with great advertisements.

Many full page and many in colour.

The large size of these issues make the above even more dramatic.

 

All issues are original pre-owned issues and might have minor creases, small tears and stains.

Nearly all are in good condition with all pages intact and readable and photos in good condition.

Life in the 60s 

The 1960 era was an amazing decade of world and social upheavals.

People were waking up to the reality of world events through the

power of televison and no longer accepted the status quo as it had been presented to them.

The youth started experimenting with drugs and dropped out of regimented society.

This was the decade of science and advancement. Computers and space exploration.

The Cold War was a looming threat and nuclear warfare was always on everyone's minds.

This was the decade of revolutionaries like Che Gueverra in Bolivia and Africa, Mao Tse-Tung in China, Muammar al-Gaddafi in Libya.

This was the decade of Israeli Arab wars, the Berlin Wall, French riots of students and workers.

Inspite of all the unrest mankind reached the moon.
