Mad Magazine

If you’re old enough to remember Mad magazine’s awesome movie spoof issues, then these will fondly ring a bell. If you’re young enough to have missed all this, then get yourself to eBay and grab any one of these classic issues of 70’s and 80’s Mad magazines to read satirical comics at their finest.

Toilet Paper Magazine

Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan is a clever artist who enjoys a good joke. Among his notable satirical sculptures, Cattelan’s photography also took a new level of abstract commentary with the launch of Toilet Paper, a highly-sought after publication he founded in 2010. Not every photo he takes qualifies to make it into the magazine… only the ones with “uncanny ambiguity” he laughs. Case in point, see above.  

To purchase the infamous set of Toilet Paper magazines, check out a few issues found on eBay. Each printing is a precious collectors item.

Vintage Playboys
The other day, while checking out the shops along Bleecker Street in New York City’s West Village, we stumbled upon this unique window display housing 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s Playboy Magazines. This copy, which unfortunately wasn’t for sale - regardless of our begging and failed negotiation tactics, had an Ivy League School theme - perfect to place on a coffee table. Fear not, we found a few other classic vintage issues in the eBay closet to begin amassing the pinup collection.

My New Favorite Tumblr: The Paris Review
By Jauretsi
This week, I glanced upon the sweet pages of The Paris Review, a quarterly magazine that was founded in 1953. Well, the iconic magazine now has a Tumblr, addressed to “the good writers and good poets, the non-drumbeaters and non-axe grinders” according to their bio. Curated by Justin Alvarez, the blog is a variety of literary musings and visual nuggets. If you’re unfamiliar with the print edition, or just an avid collector of older issues, check out vintage Paris Reviews available on eBay.
