ljuvaminnen_8_16

Got this in the mail today, Swedish crosswords magazine Ljuva Minnen Kryss med Nostalgi (issue 8 2016). This is one of the best Greta Garbo covers that I have ever seen, and it comes from one of my all time favourite movies, “Queen Christina” (1933) too. You can not argue with that kind of charisma, it still works. Headline with the shot says “Queen Greta”. No arguments there.

Good job.

This Hercules, Samson & Ulysses Calendar for 2017 is one of the best that I have spotted so far. Classic movie posters from the good old days.

Looks great.

You can see on the Scandinavian comic book covers that Winter is around the corner. We could have had snow at this point but Summer is not giving up quite yet. In fact, only the colours of the trees and the long dark nights points to the fact that Fall has arrived.

This is a 260 page Donald Winter pocket over in Norway, cover art by William Van Horn.

This looks like a good read. The October/November issue of Canada´s History certainly sports a nice cover.

I would love to test a bow like that.

Roman Britain

readersdigest_uk_oct16

The October 2016 issue of Reader´s Digest (UK edition) takes a look at what Rome added to British culture. Some invasions can be good for you in the long run, and that would probably be the message here. But then there are other invasions that might not be so good for you. Think WWII, an invasion that failed. And I guess most of you can add some historic event or other to this list…

Even Rome fell in the end.

Well look what we have got here. A new Jimi Hendrix album is released today on CD and Double Vinyl. Titled “Machine Gun – Fillmore East First Show 12/31/69”, it certainly sports a pretty decent cover. 11 tracks of guitar magic. Check this promotional clip on YouTube from the Vinyl manufacturing floor. Got to have one of those.

Good news.
