At that time, Cosmopolitan had its core readers among the so-called "first-class families", and was more filled with knitting patterns than articles about the more general issues concerning young women. Only when Helen Gurley Brown took over editorial responsibility in the 70's the magazine got the form we know today. Brown wanted to write for those who were concerned about more than acquiring husband and children. The result was a worldwide magazine and an international brand.

Helen is a living legend in the magazine industry. In an age of 83 she is still editor in chief of all the international editions of Cosmopolitan Magazine. She was editor in chief for the United States until 1997. Helen lived an active single life until she was 37 years old. Then she married the advertising man David Brown, and the couple are still happy together. It was David who wrote all the covers of american Cosmopolitan while Helen stood at the helm. Brown is a trained secretary, and says she has come to where she is today by hard work and a fearless attitude.

The magazine is for girls who already have a good life - and who want to make the most of it!

Cosmopolitan is an ego angled magazine for the target audience of girls between 20-30, or to put it another way: for all who do not have the feeling of being established, even if you have both your own home, real job, husband and children. Cosmopolitan magazine examines what is important in her life: Relationships, fashion, beauty, career, personal development, health and much more.

Cosmopolitan Magazine Back Issues: A Smart Choice

What is a back issue? It is a previous month's issue of a magazine. Thus, it is basically any issue of a magazine other than the current one. These issues are sometimes collectors' items; otherwise they are cheaper versions of the magazine. It is smart to purchase Cosmopolitan Magazine back issues for these reasons.

Old Cosmo magazines are a great choice because the magazine offers many bits of advice that stand the test of time. Other than fashion tips, relationship advice and other tips offered in the magazine do not go out of style. This means that you can get great value out of these old magazines.

It's also a good idea to get a hold of certain magazine issues that may become collectors' items. Doing this requires either having a good 'sense' of what will be desired in the future, or talking to a collector. You can find cheap (or free) copies of magazines that will then be worth more.

Where can one find old issues of Cosmopolitan Magazine? They can be found on the official website, as well as through many alternative sources. There are websites available that cater specifically to those looking for these magazines. Also, bidding websites have plenty of these back issues available.

Another way of getting these magazine issues is by talking to friends or going to garage sales. If you simply ask someone with a subscription, it's very likely that they will be willing to give you a copy for free.

Reading magazine back issues can also be really fun if they are old enough. For instance, reading a magazine from the 1980s can bring back memories for those who lived through the decade. For those who did not, these magazines say a lot about American culture at the time. In other words, they are historical items.
