Magazines #47: SPY (May 1988)
Here is a 1988 issue of SPY magazine. If you don't remember, SPY was kind of like National Lampoon, but not as funny, not as irreverent, and so-very of its time - the late 1980s. Still, it's worth a browse.
I've included some sample pages below - advertisements and pictures I found interesting. Or, you can download the whole shebang. Either way, enjoy!
I wonder how this comparison would look today. Comparing TIME to reality television and 24 hour news networks would give you a very different breakdown today, I would think.
I fly a good bit with my job, and I can't comprehend how this even makes sense. They'll upgrade you to first class with a coach fare? (cough) gimmick (cough)
Haven't seen Mondo New York, but I hear it's a cool documentary of the eighties NYC music scene. Anyone recommend?
I suppose this shoe advertisement is supposed to be funny. I, for one, am not laughing.
Note: I've decided to do away with any advertising, and just rely on reader generosity to keep this train running. I certainly don't plan to ever make a profit from Retrospace - just recouping some of my expenses for scanning, etc. would be wonderful.
Keep Retrospace truckin'! Even a buck will help!
