Poster magazines were essentially A4 glossy colour magazines which folded out into a (large) A1-sized sheet. One side would be the magazine (with articles and plenty of photographs) while the reverse would be a giant poster and, depending on what you’d bought, the image might be a person, an action scene or the film poster. I had several and most kids I knew had at least one huge poster on their wall.

spacemonstersmag reckons the magazines died out in the 1990's, which is a shame. I still have a few in my collection (though not on the walls of my study) and think they’re great fun, another nostalgic item for film and TV fans of a certain age.
Did you have any? Which ones were on your wall?
