Eleven years ago this month, the first issue of Slate magazine hit the streets. This was its pledge…
This ethos remained a feature throughout its impressive run of a further 26 issues. And it was a bargain. All you had to do was get into Tower records and pick up your free copy before supplies ran out.
Issue 1 had 48 glossy pages. 11 pages were adverts such as the one above for Lextricks.

The page below is a scan of a page from the “best of” Slate which shows the covers for each of the 27 issues.
Thanks to Don Rosco for lending me his copy of Issue #1.
