The Tatler magazine first launched in 1901 as a weekly society journal, absorbing The Bystander in 1940, but when the Swinging Sixties arrived, the magazine was replaced by a new title more in tune with the decade – London Life.
In October 1965, and for the next fifteen months, London Life went on to document one of the most exciting periods of British popular culture.
It was the height of Swinging Sixties London during which Twiggy became the face of 1966 and movers & shakers emerged, all featured in the impossibly hip magazine. Short-lived it may have been, but London Life provided a precise snapshot of Swinging London at its peak.
Art & Hue had the pleasure to access the archives, in collaboration with the Mary Evans Picture Library and Illustrated London News, to remix magazine covers into stylish pop art prints, all available in three sizes and 19 colours, in Art & Hue’s graphic style.
