The magazine covered a lot of ground, heavy on politics and national affairs. It also offered short stories, essays and serialized novels, as well as plenty of Hollywood gossip and features.
The cover illustrations really caught my eye, too. One of the main illustrators for Liberty was Leslie Thrasher. He also did twenty-three covers for the Saturday Evening Post where his counterpart Norman Rockwell also worked. Here are the ones that came bundled with a bunch of other 1930s periodicals.
