I’ve seen these amusing synth / nudie mag images floating around Tumblr and Pinterest for sometime now, but never knew who was behind them. Now I know: Artist Rachel Laine created these fictious “naughty” magazine covers for the Bedroom Cassette Masters project. (Music in-the-style-of lo-fi, cassette-based, bedroom-recorded demos.)
I was asked to imagine a series of seventies-era magazines aimed at young men seriously into synthesizers and electronic organs which would all betray their sexist origins by their covers!
Damn, I really wish these were the real deal. I’d be on eBay buying ‘em up in 3…2…1…
