A delightful and handsome magazine. Described by the editor, Phyllis Johnson, as a return to the original meaning of magazine as "a storehouse, a cache, a ship laden with stores." The magazine covers a sampler of refined pleasures: from skiing to Jazz to design to the ptarmigan "the hide-and-seek bird of the timberline". A feast of exquisite design, texture, color, and articles that deserve to hold your full attention; this volume of The Magazine in a Box grants you a well- rounded taste of Aspen, CO in 1965 in only the loveliest light.
Ed. Phyllis Johnson
