Apocalypse Art

Atomic Bomb Aftermath, 1950s Style

These specially commissioned illustrations are from Pageant magazine’s February, 1951 edition, produced by Alexander Leydenfrost,  famous for realistic impressions. The edition took a look at what would happen in America if an A-bomb (atomic bomb) hit. The exodus illustration is especially good, and the whole layout realistic.  It’s an online post from SF Weekly.
