New Zealand Woman's Weekly

The New Zealand Woman's Weekly was founded in 1932 with the aim of becoming 'a national family journal in the truest and fullest sense of the word'. By 2020 it was the longest-running such magazine in the country. In this 1962 photograph, Vic Staines (production), Jean Wishart (editor), Joy Lee (assistant editor) and Michael Wilson (photographer) discuss the design of the 30th-anniversary issue.
