Famous Magazines' First Covers (PHOTOS)

Inspired by the cover of the first issue of the Atlantic, the folks at Flavorwire have compiled the debut covers of some of today's biggest magazines.

Some of the covers, like National Geographic's, are simple cover pages with the title and issue date. Others, like Vogue and Harper's Bazaar -- which feature drawings of stylish 19th century women -- are just older versions of their current form. Meanwhile, the cover of TVGuide immortalized Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz's baby.

Below, see some of Flavorwire's picks -- and click over to the site for the rest.
