First Covers of Canadian Magazines

Our friends at Magazines Canada’s new blog – Canadian Magazines Canadiens – are compiling a virtual collection of first covers of famous Canadian magazines, through an ongoing series of blog posts. So far we’ve seen first covers of National Magazine Award-winning magazines Chatelaine, This Magazine, Cottage Life, AdBusters, The Walrus, Maclean’s, Geist, Elle Quebec, The Beaver, The Fiddlehead, The Capilano Review, and more.

Although this Chatelaine debut cover predates the National Magazine Awards by almost fifty years, it probably would have swayed the judges then or now. Adorable kids on the cover? Some things never change.

Have a look at the new CMC blog first covers collection, and if you know of a first cover of a magazine, let ’em know.

One thought on “First Covers of Canadian Magazines

  1. Regarding the March 1928 Chatelaine Magazine cover. We have a 2′ x 3′ framed picture of this magazine cover. I do not know how old it is, but we are wondering if this could be some sort of an ad poster or if it is just a copy.. Is there any way we can tell? Any help would be great.
    Thank You Mark Kaake
