Arts Bombast: Puss Magazine

Between 1968-1974, a group of Swedish artists produced 24 copies of Puss Magazine, an often radical, always inappropriate political satire magazine. Check these groovy covers, and tell me- why does ANYONE need colors other than black, white and a bit of red?

Lena Svedberg was one of the contributors- sadly, she offed herself in 1972 when she was my age. She suffered from anorexia (you can tell in the pic of her- third from the bottom) but no one really diagnosed or treated eating disorders in those days.

    I LOVE these covers. Just amazing. An album cover done in this style would be incredible.

    Absolutely gorgeous covers. Poor Lena Svedberg- she look like she must have been a very interesting individual.
