A Collection a Day #61 – Starlog magazines, originally uploaded by Cool and Collected.
Hey kids! Once upon a time there were these things called magazines. They were plentiful in the days before the interwebs but now they are threatened with extinction, which is sad because they are an absolute treasure trove of knowledge.
I am always looking for old magazines in my travels. Most people just threw them away once they were done reading them, but some titles are still great fun to read 30 years after they were published. One title I find particularly good is Starlog, since its subject matter hits my collecting areas squarely on the head. The early issues are filled with behind the scenes stories about Star Wars, Star Trek, and everything else that tried to ride their coat tails. If you’re lucky enough to find a stack of these at a yard sale, pay a few bucks and enjoy!
I have collected so many different things that I thought it would be fun to try and photograph a collection a day and see how far I can get.
