The JCK covers from the late 1970s were so entertaining that I expanded this cover collection to 13 so I could include some of the goofier ones along with the beautiful ones.
This collection also marks the last decade of JCK covers I’ll be reviewing this year. But stayed tuned because in December I’ll be choosing my 50 favorites from the early 1800s to the 1970s with the help of JCK’s editorial team.
Some fun facts about the time span of this JCK cover collection:
- 1975: Bill Gates and Paul Allen found Microsoft.
- 1976: The United States celebrates the bicentennial of the Declaration of Independence.
- 1977: Star Wars opens at the box office and becomes a cultural phenomenon.
- 1978: New York Yankees’ infielder Bucky Dent keeps the Curse of the Bambino alive by hitting a home run at Fenway Park to defeat the Boston Red Sox and clinch the American League pennant.
- 1979: The Iran hostage crisis begins.
