eBay watch: First issue of The Face magazine from 1980


Early editions of magazines are always sought-after – so this first issue of The Face magazine from 1980 is currently a real steal.

This 'style bible' (as it liked to be thought of) dates from 1980, with editing by Nick Logan, art direction by Nevile Brody and a writing team that included Julie Burchill, Ian Dury and Adrian Thrills. This particular also had articles on The Specials, The Clash, Madness, Public Image and Dexys Midnight Runners. Top notch imagery too.

It's described as being in 'near mint' condition with 'very slight wear on spine and very slight creases on top of rear few pages', nothing more. All of that for just 99p right now. Like I said, a real steal.
