Magazine Archives
The Fabulous magazine archive. Fabulous magazine was launched in January 1964 and was one of the top selling music magazines of the 60s and 70s, running for nearly 900 issues. It consisted of full colour shots of pop artists and groups, taken by top photographers, including David Steen and Robert Whitaker, which could be used as wall posters. Predominantly concentrating on Merseymania at the outset, it contained at least one pin-up of The Beatles in every issue for two years and some issues, such as 15th February 1964, were almost totally devoted to the group.
