So pleased to have acquired a copy of this extremely rare Daily Telegraph Magazine from 1968. The cover girl is none other than Marianne Faithfull, striking a comic strip superhero pose as 'Morgan Le Faythful' just prior to the release of her film The Girl on a Motorcycle. The cover was designed by British pop artist Peter Blake, who took his inspiration for Marianne's character from the Arthurian legend of Morgan Le Fay - (come on her dragon to regenerate a decaying world). To produce the poster, Blake painted upon an enlargement of a photograph by Hans Feurer, he also had a lot of help from his wife, scupltress Jann Haworth - who made the dragon and painted it in fairground colours, she also created Marianne's sorceress costume! The cover was released by the Telegraph for sale as a poster measuring 20"x 30" for the bargain price of 3s 6d. in april of '68. (Where are they all now I wonder ?).
