50 Years of WL: #50 Our Favourite Covers From the Archives

From 1971 to 2021, five decades of covers managed to, well, cover it all.


That's a wrap, folks. After months of brainstorming, rooting through archives, writing up stories, scanning old issues and piecing it all together, we're ending where it begins—the covers. While some are dated ("Great Kitchens for Men Who Cook") and some are ridiculously on-the-nose ("Strawberry Fields Forever," featuring an adorable redheaded kid), all are a part of our history. We hope you enjoyed this journey through the past as much as we did. Cheers to the next 50 years!
