Most weeks I upload scans from my vintage magazine collection. Whether it's Lillian Gish in a 1920 Picturegoer or Robin Williams in a 1979 My Guy, you can find them all listed HERE. This week I'm running a little giveaway instead for the Best of Jackie Annual.
Launched in January 1964, Jackie quickly became an ubiquitous companion to Britain's teen - or pre-teen, at any rate - girls. Agony Aunts Cathy and Claire responded to readers' problems, providing they weren't too risque, and pull out posters of David Cassidy, David Essex and Donny Osmond graced many a 1970s bedroom wall. The magazine retained strong sales through most of the 1980s but, by the end of the decade, tastes were changing. Circulation fell and the title folded in 1993, making way for new titles like Sugar (launched in '94) and Bliss ('95).
If you want to relive, or simply live, the joys of Jackie you can get up to five entries for the giveaway by filling out the Gleam form below:
