With seemingly everyone these days obtaining most (if not all) of their news and information online, paper magazines such as these 1970-80s versions I saw in an antique store window, are truly a thing of the past. I can remember standing by news stands or in drug stores in front of the magazine displays, flipping pages of publications which caught my interest. Popular Mechanics and Popular Science were two of my favorites. I was not visionary enough back then, however, to realize that those magazines with “computer” in their titles were in fact spelling doom for anything to be published on paper. It’s a shame in a way, because there was something very relaxing about sitting in a soft chair with a cool drink by your side, turning paper pages in a magazine, and reading about all sorts of wonderful things.
Then…there were comic books but that was really a long time ago.
