This is another recognisable front cover first used in October 1961. It shows the bold, bright, crisp and clean circle design which was used for the next two years.
The use of a more costly coloured lithography process marked the increasing profile of the magazine. The colours of the design changed periodically, including blue, pink, purple and the ochre seen here.
The now-printed title is encased within a coloured circle, with the editorial board presented underneath.
However, issue numbers and dates were sometimes written on, and any mistakes crossed off, reminding us of the essentially amateur running of the publication. At this time it was still came out weekly and was compiled by students, with minimal intervention from the Gregory Fellow W. 'Bill' Price Turner, or the School of English.
Ben Sherriff's editorial highlights his perceived non-partisan ethos of the magazine. He stated that:
'In choosing the poems we have no political, religious or moral axe to grind' and states that the magazine's tradition 'of publishing six poems a week for the price of a penny has been maintained unbroken'.
