That's LIFE

A post - for no particular reason (I suppose that would be an appropriate excuse for all other posts on the blog too.) Just thought it would be interesting and something different, an issue of Life - a magazine that has showcased the works of many legendary photographers. Here is one published in 1968 with the Beatles, strikingly dressed, on the cover.
I can imagine our own superstar, Rajini, freaking out in any one of those suits. :) Posted by Picasa

October 14 1968. Did u chance upon this issue or were you looking for something in specific

Yes, tilo, I liked it a lot, been meaning to post it for quite sometime.
Rajesh, this has been in the family since then. Thanks to a `periappa' who gave me his collection of Life mags.
I plan to post more such covers (mostly from the late 1960s) in the coming weeks.

Balaji - That article in MM where I mentioned hididng in a sed lined with old magazines -- Life was one of them. such treasures were lost when that house was sold....

Tilotamma: That is sad.
In my case it was a close call. Over 20 years back when my uncle told me I could have the collection the condition was that I take it `immediately' or it goes to `pazhaya paper-kaaran.'
