"Joliet Stateville Time"
Published by the Inmates of the Illinois State Penitentiary.
Vol 1, issue 7; Nov 1, 1946.
This issue has a Thanksgiving theme running through it, with a couple related drawings.
The cover depicts a prisoner, a hatchet and a turkey, in that great 1940s style. The corner is signed "Lino-cut" and "Rooney"
There are 24 pages.
Chatter about the other Prison Magazines (sort of a rivalry).
A prisoner "count".
Church news (...isn't that special?)
And articles, too.
There is a surprising amount of reading matter, a lot of thought went into this magazine.
Very scarce publication.
See photos for detailed condition. Condition: good to very good. There is some yellowing of the paper. No odors, no writing, no tears, no mold, no foxing. A few dog-eared pages. Actually, quite surprisingly nice condition for the age and circumstances.
