People Say We’re Monkeying Around

And they’re right. This is a monkeying-around post, or Monkee, if you prefer. Sometimes it’s just fun to look at stuff and think design-y thoughts.

Actually, not a helluva lot. Except, of course, Davy Jone’s expression is similar, and for many tweens in 1968 he was a living doll. Basically, this is just an excuse to show some interior typography from my fave groovy teen magazine from when I was a hippy radical underground press designer, but for relaxation between agitations and insurrection I fingered through mags like these for hair and fashion tips. Now you know.
