I’m upgrading this article, it was one of the first ones I put on this site of mine, which also belongs to everyone.
When I started this site my idea was always to share the images, and the information, contained in the magazines that are of an enormous historical wealth.
So, it was 6 months ago that I started this project. Technically I barely knew how to do it, and even so I continued this work.
I am evolving since then, and the next articles (I still have 2 or 3 upgrades to go), besides presenting more rare and unique covers, I will also talk a little bit about myself.
How did I get into this universe of magazines? Where do I find them? In which places? To whom? Why are there Portuguese magazines so rare? And so sought after all over the world? There is a whole series of interesting questions I’ve been asked, and as I publish new posts I’ll be glad to answer them.
Pelé on the cover
On the cover of this interesting Flama number 1165, published in 1970, is one of football’s kings, Pelé, during the 1970 World Cup.
Inside this magazine, unique articles related to Dustin Hoffman, Jorge Ben, Pablo Picasso, Conjunto Evolução, and the 1970 Football World Cup (with an exclusive report to Jairzinho in Lisbon).
This magazine, which is in demand worldwide, is a generalist magazine, with unique covers and very interesting (often exclusive) articles. More than 1400 issues were published between 1944 and 1976.
After his great successes in “The Graduate” (where he won an Oscar), and “Midnight Cowboy”, Dustin Hoffman tells the story of his life.
Jorge Ben is a Brazilian musician who at this time is very successful.
He started out as a striker for the Brazilian football team Flamengo, but a very serious injury led Jorge Ben to other paths.
After having participated in television programmes in Portugal and Italy, he will now start a European tour, passing through 19 cities.
This musician who started his musical career with the more danceable rhythms of the Samba, learnt to play the guitar and evolved into a much quieter Bossanova.
The musical band Evolução has just released its first single through RCA. A second work will be ready soon.
This band reveals its influences ranging from impressionism, Beatles and even classical music.
In the palace of the Popes in Avignon, Pablo Picasso exhibited 165 oils and 45 drawings. These paintings were produced between January 1969 and February 1970.
Nudes, grotesque visions, scenes of picaresque romance – the general tone is erotic-Hispanic, testifying to an exuberant and healthy joy. Autobiographical, in homage to women and love.
Brazil is the 1970 FIFA World Cup champion in Mexico. They beat the Italian team 4-1 in the final.
Pelé was one of the great protagonists. He won the golden ball and scored 4 goals in the whole championship.
Jairzinho was another protagonist of this World Cup. He won the Golden Shoe and scored 7 goals.

Jairzinho was in Lisbon (Portugal), and here we can find an exclusive of Flama, with original pictures.
