This is one of a selection of harder-to-find vintage fashion and household magazines that I have listed in my shop.
This one is was issued in November 1958. It is now over 60 years old! yikes!
It is a monthly publication - with features on art, design, home interiors and decorating, and household applicants.
It is paperback / softcover and measures 30 x 22 cm.
This one is in fine vintage condition. It has lots of fascinating features and some fabulous adverts inside.
Ideal Home magazine issues are getting harder to find - and this is reflected in my price.
I have taken a number of random images inside the issues for your inspection. The cover is generally fine - some losses disfiguring losses to the spine at the top, and bottom and some wee fold marks on the corners - but all pages are present and nice and clean. The issues with the paper cracking on the spine seem to be a common fault in these old publications. There is also a repaired tear to the back cover. It is all pretty stable though!
Lots of pages.. some 231 - so a nice thick... lots of fabulous period adverts (some of the full-page colour ones could be removed and framed) and design inspiration.
Check out that Christmas advert that I have photographed - that is so funny! Don't do that this Christmas... yer dinner might be in the bin!
It is a great issue - shame about the cover not being pristine - have priced this to take that into consideration. The 50s issues are harder to find - and this is a great research resource for interior designers.
