Dig Magazine

Published in Hollywood, Dig, “for teenagers only,” often featured rock and roll musicians such as Elvis and the Beatles as well as television and film stars from the 1950s and 1960s on its covers. Similar to other magazines of the period, such as Teen, Tigerbeat, and Seventeen, it also featured articles on popular culture, music, and fashion, along with advice articles and celebrity profiles. This type of popular culture material is a significant part of the Geppi Collection, which highlights the intersections between film, television, comics, and other areas of popular culture in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
