Nov 22 2011: A Selection of Random Graphics, Photographs and Other Images from M.D. Magazine (1967)
To round off the past four days’ galleries of advertising from 1967 issues of MD Magazine (the other three can be found on the following links, covering graphic, photographic and general approaches) here are a handful of ‘straggler’ images that for various reasons didn’t seem to fit elsewhere. These reasons were mainly to do with a lack of information about the specific products they were once attached to: it should be admitted that the issues of MD Magazine I found a fair while back weren’t in especially good condition, and while perfect for collage (the main reason I picked them up in the first place) this wasn’t always ideal in terms of spreads being complete, or pages undamaged. Anyway, several of these oddments, unattached as they are, seemed striking enough to be worth adding here, for my own future reference if to noone else’s interest: and if anyone out there knows what the extraordinary illustration of a girl’s face and hair above was once advertising I’d love to know. My guess, given the context, is some kind of contraceptive or hormone treatment, but its impact is so strong in a highly non-specific and general way that it might well have been produced to advertise pretty much anything at all.
