Impression: The Mod’s Monthly

While completing my visual research I was really drawn to a 1960s teen monthly publication – The Mod’s Monthly.

I same across a really interesting blog post which discussed the magazine and gave me a bit of insight into the publication. A short-lived magazine from around 1964, it’s more of a novelty these days than any kind of critique of the mod scene past. The post gives some examples of pages from the magazine as well as some of the text inside which I find really useful when thinking about compiling my own ‘magazine’. The text from the magazine can be used in my own in order to give me more time to work on illustrations and layout design.

The idea of looking at The Mod’s Monthly was to take inspiration for the cover design and inside covers as seen in the image below.
