ILLINOIS PARKS & |
Volume 28, Number 5 • September/October 1997
Things get a little wild on the cover of this history issue. Taking a
cue from LIFE magazine's 60th anniversary cover (minus the
Marilyn Monroe photomosaic), featured are 25 past issues of our
statewide magazine, from 1941 to 1997. It's been called "Illinois
Park Board Bulletin," " Illinois Parks," and now "
Illinois Parks &Recreation." During the war years, poetry "for the boys"
made the ncover and life in the "Atomic Age" was pondered.
Nature and recreation remain mainstays. Special thanks to the
graphics team at For Color in Springfield for their work on this cover.
