All dated between 1937 and 1939, they ooze 30s charm and glamour.
|A classic example of the exquisite covers the Theatre World always managed to have.|
It must have been wonderful to have seen a theatre play at that time. There were many famous film stars who trod the boards around this era, so you had a fair chance of seeing a top star as well.
Oddly, there isn't that much info on the history of the magazine online, but you see them occasionally knocking around antique fairs, and I've bought a few in the past. I know it started in 1925 and made it to the 50s, before I think it amalgamated with another theatre magazine.
|Brilliant comic scene by three veteran actors.|
|Stunning portrait of Bernard Shaw. Or George Bernard Shaw as he's also known!|
|On the eve of war and Theatre World has upped its game. They've redesigned their covers, by ditching the orange colour scheme and having a full-bleed photo. Brilliant!|
A couple of the issues I bought were a bit tatty, so I've decided to do a decoupage of a few of the amazing portraits and stage shots within the magazines.
I also recently bought a 1930s bedside cabinet, so I'm going to use that to create a glamorous Art Deco piece of furniture.
I'm hoping to start it this week, so watch this space!!
