1950s Scout Magazine

The illustrator Pierre Joubert and the photographer Robert Manson pretty much had the image of the Scoutisme movement in France sewn up between them in the early and mid-twentieth century. These late 50s covers for Scout magazine show just how design conscious the movement was and how, though cheaply produced, they managed to create an image for scouting which was then completely contemporary and now, deliciously retro.

Two of these covers are the work of illustrator and comic strip artist René Pellos (10 mars 1958, numéro 339; and 25 mars 1958, numéro 338--which is weird as numbering goes). His signature is visible in the lower right corner.
Pellos is famous for his science fiction strip, "Futuropolis", and for his long run on the comic series "Les Pieds Nickelés".
