London Life (all featuring art by Matania)

LONDON LIFE magazine

London Life was a magazine published by New Picture Press in London from 1920 to 1960. It started as a weekly published in a larger-than-A4 format, but during the war rationing forced it to drop frequency to fortnightly and then monthly, and its size to A5 (1942).

Published from offices just off Fleet Street (and later at 31 Craven Street, off the Strand) in London, its contents were often mildly fetishistic, with a mixture of pin-ups, stories, salacious readers' letters, news and humour.

From the late 1940s to the early 1950s Fortunino Matania contributed historical articles accompanied by his own illustrations. Some of his finest artwork was featured in this magazine.
