The Face Magazine. Anyone wondering what life was like to be in your twenties, with cash in pocket and a love of the Soho/Clubbing scene a keen eye for clothes, an interest in politics, design and music,media and a touch of the old joie devivre need only look through the archive of the Face Magazine. The earliest issues captured that zeitgeist almost perfectly. Pomposity and pseudo intellectuality sure, but this magazine was a cutting edge review of young people who viewed themselves as cutting edge. Now these issues can be looked back with a degree of cynicism yet some genuine affection for a bygone era.
