Extremely Rare Kennedy Photo Ad

If you are a Kennedy collector, or know someone who is, this is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity. John F. Kennedy, while president, posed for an advertising photo to be used in Life Magazine. The ad appeared only in a regional run, not the national magazine.

The details: Life Magazine / vol. 51, no. 25 / issue dated Dec 22, 1961 / ad spread on behalf of “magazines” appears bound between numbered pages 158 and 159 / magazine cover shows wear / ad spread is clean, bright / scarce since the ad does not appear in the national edition

Please e-mail us at if you are interested in viewing or purchasing the magazine.

All items featured on this blog have been donated by our wonderfully supportive local community. All proceeds from sales go to support Reston Regional Library and other Fairfax County library programs. All of the people that run the Friends of Reston Regional Library, including the booksale chair, are volunteers. We do this because we love to connect great donations with new owners -- and benefit the library to boot.

Please support us by visiting our Semi-Annual Used Book Sale, September 26-28. Friends night is on September 25 from 6-8:30 p.m. You may purchase or renew your membership at the door.
