39 Down, 13 To Go "Cult Magazines: From A to Z:" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

Cult Magazines: From A to Z: A Compendium of Culturally Obsessive And Curiously Expressive Publications wasn't what I expected. I chose the book thinking it was an exploration of zines and zine culture, but in fact the book covers professionally published cult magazines published in the United States between 1925 and 1990. The book's essays examine the histories and inner workings of these niche magazines covering a variety of subjects (true crime, horror, comedy, etc.). Accompanied by full color reproductions of over 500 magazine covers, these stories of a bygone era often capture some of the pop culture wonder of the times and tell some fascinating tales.
