The 1950s weren’t exactly a banner decade for JCK covers.
However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the first half of the 1960s offered plenty of covers that more than redeemed our art department.
These five covers are the exceptions:
Hard to find more putrid colors and designs than actual U.S. currency, but…we found a way.
An abacus and limited text may have not been the best way to get people excited about reading about statistics. I do like the color scheme though.
I think the art director for JCK at this time was sick with an unknown illness. Unfortunately for JCK readers, he or she took a picture of it and put it on the cover.
I’m not positive, but I’m pretty sure putting an electrical plug on a cover is a design faux pas.
Giant hand!!! Run for your lives!!!
