Fortune in June

Paolo Garretto (1933).

I always enjoy the month of June if the weather is decent. This week happens to be very sunny and relatively warm, the first time in years that the month’s weather hasn’t been wet, windy, and even cold. In celebration, here’s some June magazine covers which avoid the usual seasonal imagery. All are from an excellent collection of Fortune cover designs at VTS.

    I guess things at Fortune started going downhill in the fifties…

    Same with many other mags when they started to ditch the illustrators for photography and increasing amounts of text.
