Teenager’s Weekly in Australia

Australia’s Women’s Weekly magazine had been turning out issues for twenty-six years by the time they answered rising fears of teen delinquency and and the cultural impact of rock-n-roll. In 1959 they started including Teenager’s Weekly as a pull out. Featuring fashion tips, profiles of teen idols, letters to the editors and advice columns, much of the material here remains familiar from today’s teen magazines. But it’s an awesome 60s artifact nonetheless.

The covers and content range from Warholian to mod chic to downright bizarre:
