Love the coffee cup stains on this one.  From early 1981, here we have the cover and 3 pages from its Straight Up section.  I wonder what happened that free flexi disc! And someone should trace these people down and photo shoot them, 2011 style.

  1. Hi – i think i may have been in this issue – if not I was in issue two. Is there a picture of Elaine wearing a leopardskin coat by any chance?

    1. No Elaine in this issue, sorry. There is a Gabriella wearing a leopard skin coat. Pic taken at bowwowwow gig!

  2. Dam – I know I was in an early issue – just don’t know whether 2 or 3 – just remeber George was in it as well!

    1. I just looked in issues 1 to 5 for you, but there is only as dubdoug said a Gabriella in a Leopard coat.. the perosn feauterd next to them is also named George whos stood with a guy called Frank…. maybe they got your name wrong?

      1. Adam, thanks for doing that. Nice collection you have there! Will pass this info onto Elaine.

  4. Sorry – I was being a little obtuse! My memory might be failing – I might not be in the coat! And I’m saying George as if you’d know who I meant – I meant Boy George!

    1. it must be issue 2, Boy George is on the back
      the cover is yellow with a star on… I’ve looked at every name I must be missing it..
      Was you featured as a street style shot, with name and details, or just in a feature …
      I could send you a video of me flicking thru every page…

      I am hoping to track down as many people as possible from the first few issues, so it would be great if we could find the one your in 🙂

      I’ve just sold issue 2 but I still have it in my possession…

      Thanks

  5. Hello I wonder if you could help? I am trying to find an advert that appeared in the first few issues of I-D mag. It was for a stall in Kensington Market called thehipkido. Would you be kind enough to take a look for me to confirm if it is in an issue that you have. It would be most appreciated as I am trying to buy a copy.
    thanks
    Valerie

    1. Sure. I’ll take a look and let you know. Will be a few days before I get chance to check.

  6. Hi,

    I was wondering if there was an article about different types subcultures in this edition of i-D? I have a friend who wrote the article (his name’s Jason Jules) and he’d be really grateful if you could upload some screens of it. I think it was his first ever article.

  7. I was in one of the firs 5 issues..I am a guy wearing a white jacket wioth a black trim..with oblong shades..please tell me which issue..and a scan if poss…regards
