    Description
    This archive series numbered [001] - [016] consists of PIX magazines published between 1938 and 1959. The magazine covers depict yachts, underwater divers, surfers, beach scenes and bikini models.
    HistoryPublished by Associated Newspapers Limited, PIX had a wide readership at the height of its popularity in the 1960s and 1970s. In 1971 PIX merged with People, and became more daring with their covers and content, running stories that focused on adultery, hedonism and nudity. Though potentially offensive to more conservative readers, PIX was indicative of the ways in which society came to terms with political and cultural change.
