NME, first published in 1952, has published a 60th birthday special-issue, complete with the first edition reprinted inside.
The first front cover featured some of the greatest names in music at the time; Ivy Benson, Kenny Baker and Dickie Valentine.
The collectors’ issue also features some of the most influential artists in music talking about NME and all that it is famous for.
Eight different covers have been produced, starring some of the biggest names in music.
Liam Gallagher, Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, Patti Smith, Arctic Monkeys, John Lydon, The Killers and Manic Street Preachers, pose with their most famous covers to create eight striking front pages.
Mike Williams, Editor of NME, said: “We are proud of all that NME has become known for – striking photography, authoritative reporting, strong opinions and interviews with the most iconic artists in music.
“That’s why we put together a birthday issue unlike any of the others, to express what makes this magazine so special.
“Eight covers illustrate NME’s individuality and personal recollections from some of the biggest names in music show the rapport NME has with these stars.”
