This is the First Numbered Issue of Ms. Magazine from July, 1972 - Co-founded by Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman Hughes. Ms. first appeared as an insert in New York Magazine in December, 1971. Wonder Woman was featured on the cover once again in 2017 for the 45th Anniversary of their publication.
In 1967 the great New York Typographer, Herb Lubalin, was asked by his old friend Ralph Ginzburg to design a logo for a new magazine. Herb designed a font using the name of the magazine - Avant Garde and went on to design the entire magazine. Only 16 issues over a period of 3 years were published.
