Midi Minuit Fantastique
Please forget all your shitty horror magazines and take a look at this. During the sixties, there were a french magazine dedicated to fantastic, sci fi and horror movies. Its name was MIDI-MINUIT FANTASTIQUE. It was printed on solid white paper, with numerous b&w pics. Layout and design were outstanding. Such quality was a kind of miracle in a world of publications that often were (and still are) very ugly. MIDI-MINUIT FANTASTIQUE was published the first time in 1962, with a sober b&w cover. Size became bigger in 1966, and later in 1967 cover was in full color. You can view all the covers here. On wikipedia you will find a short history of this prestigious magazine.
