There was this new image of what young men, at least, might aspire to on US newsstands, on the date of my birth, but the following were more typical of the press aimed squarely at the male reader, with their issues dated on my birth-month (and most of them probably still on the stands till just before the beginning of August, at least)...(verges, at least, on NSFW by the end...)
And before we get to the manly titles, a brief look at what a few the more interesting women's magazines were up to in the same cover date:
For example, the fiction contents of this Redbook, officially tagging itself the "magazine for young adults" (courtesy the FictionMags Index):
|Redbook [v123 #4, August 1964]|
Meanwhile, like Rogue below, The Ladies Home Journal was offering Saroyan fiction, and, like Mlle., young Bergen on the cover, along with a memoir of literary Paris from Katherine Anne Porter.
|Student cover model: Candice Bergen|
One of the student editors for this issue: Betsey Johnson
This one usually good for fiction, too.
|Thomas B. Dewey's novel excerpted? "Condensed"?|
|John Le Carre's fiction more True than not..and concentrated!|
|An Arthur C. Clarke scuba memoir is the "book bonus"...|
