A daily look back at the toys, games, and objects that captured our attention as children and continue to fascinate us today.


Imagination was a magazine featuring science fiction stories by genre luminaries Philip K. Dick, Evan Hunter, Robert Sheckley, John Wyndham, and a host of other inspired writers.

First produced in 1950 by Clark Publishing Company before being handed over to Greenleaf Publishing Company, Imagination enjoyed a 63-issue run. Readers eager to ponder undiscovered realities enjoyed fanciful stories about space travel and interplanetary beings along with colourful – and sometimes provocative – artwork.

Digital editions of Imagination are available on Luminist Archives.
