London Life in CR June

After David Hillman’s recent D&AD President’s Lecture, the main topic of conversation was not Nova or The Guardian, but a magazine that lasted just 18 months and went out of business over 40 years ago. London Life was put together by a dream team of the top editorial talent of the day including Duffy, Terence Donovan, Gerald Scarfe, David Puttnam as managing editor and a young jobbing illustrator called Ian Dury (yes, that one). CR’s next Monograph will feature 16 spreads and covers from this rare magazine.
