This robot from the July 1957 issue of Fantasy and Science Fiction gives us a glimpse into the extremely boring future that we were envisioning at the time. you know times are rough when you are digging through a barren wasteland to read sears catalogs.
This issue didn’t really have much in the way of other illustrations. The only other illustration in the whole thing, aside from advertisements, was this cute little rocket ship. Its only about an inch across at the bottom of one of the pages.
The ads are interesting though. I particularly liked the inside cover ad for a new movie that year “Beginning of The End”, starring Peter Graves.
It was so new and tremendous that they had to invent a new word: NEWMENDOUS.
