Editor: James Manning

A book from 2019 marking Time Out’s 50th anniversary, featuring 50 iconic covers and the stories behind them. Brought back to the shop after the 2022-shaped news that the (now) free city listings magazine will be closing its doors this summer. Time Out, out.
On the Journal:
‘There have been a series of magazine anniversaries recently, as titles that launched in the late sixties mark their 50th birthdays. That era spawned a number of anti-establishment, anti-consumerist yet very successful magazines, and is long passed, but the desire to mark their history remains. New York magazine published a beautiful and vast book earlier this year, and Interview just relaunched with original launch cover star Agnes Varda on its cover 50 years on.
Time Out’s is the latest anniversary, and this book celebrates those 50 years with 50 front cover designs. We learn a lot about Time Out from this book, some of it deliberate and some less so.’
