Also many articles on art (Matisse, Jean Cocteau, Le Corbusier, Dali, Picasso), literature (Hemingway, Simone de Beauvoir, Sartre), science (the death of Einstein), music (Piaf, Patachou, Gilbert Bécaud, Johnny Ray, Lionel Hampton), sports (Tour de France with winner Louison Bobet, car crash in Le Mans), space travel etc.
Very noteworthy is the series of articles about the Soviet Union, with unique photos of the famous photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson.
Apart from the richly illustrated articles on politics, sports, art, music, theatre, film, etc., the offered issues contain many wonderful ‘jazzy’ style advertisements.
On the covers, among others, Brigitte Bardot, Sophia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Greta Garbo, Zizi Jeanmaire, Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster, Gerard Philippe, Matisse and Louison Bobet.
The many pictures provide a good impression of this lot and show all the details.
