Merry Christmas From The Publishing World

Looking back at the glory days of the festive magazine and comic book cover.

As with so many things, the golden age of the festive magazine cover is very much a thing of the past. Like magazine covers in general, artistry and fun have – for the most part – been long since replaced with slogan-heavy populism, with any sense of festive fun swapped for soap stars and the hard sell.

Here, for your Christmas pleasure, are a collection of magazine and comic book covers from yesteryear that bring the joy of the season to life. And don’t forget to also check out our complete Christmas Radio Times gallery for more classic imagery.
