Between The Covers

If you're in London you can't miss Between the Covers: Women's Magazines and their Readers , an exhibition that charts the evolution of women's magazines from the 17th century to the present day, showcasing some of the most influential and innovative titles and telling the stories behind their success.


Women change and magazines reflect this change, we know it has always happened but it's amazing to have a direct look at all this, facing troubles and needs women had had during the last 300 years, from home economics to cheerful gossip!





The exhibition is due to run until August 29th at The Women's Library, London Metropolitan University, 25 Old Castle Street, London E1 7NT.
Entrance is free.

Ooohhh, so very awesome! I wish I could justify a trip to London just to see this exhibit (I'm a huge magazine - both past and present - fan). Thank you for posting about this, sweetie, I hadn't heard about it yet.

Have a beautiful day!

The dress on the cover of Boyfriend is so sweet! I would most definately wear that, with a cute bouffant hair-do.
