Light & Shade Magazine Covers (1950’s)

A set of covers from the publication ‘Light & Shade’ from the late 1950’s. I have a set of 15 covers from No.1 to No.15, but have no idea if that is a full set? These were produced by Russell Gay and published by Dalrow Publication Ltd. Pennine Publications, Bolton. A very similar set of magazines in the same style, including Tr-coloured covers was published under the title ‘Line & Form’, but by Eva Grant (I also have a set of these to edit and post).

I love the covers of this magazine especially the use of one primary colour per cover. and I think my favourites are No.8, No.9 (June Simpson) and No.12. Thanks must go to Paul from Firebird Records for all of these magazines and covers, a superb collection!

  1. It’s interesting to note that 2/6 in the late fifties would have been worth about £3, which, if you think that the average wage, per week, was about £10, that was quite a considerable sum of money.

    all very artistic though . . .
