Check out these gorgeous graphic Fortune covers from the 50s (more here). A far cry from today's glossy talking heads and tabloid type. [via FFFFOUND!]
From Wiki, for what its worth:
Single copies of that first issue cost $1 at a time when the Sunday New York Times was only 5¢. At a time when business publications were little more than numbers and statistics printed in black and white, Fortune was an oversized 11"×14", using creamy heavy paper, and art on a cover printed by a special process. Fortune was also noted for its photography, featuring the work of Margaret Bourke-White and others. Walker Evans served as its photography editor from 1945-1965.
