I'm super sad there wasn't a OLTL one now but good that there's some sort of GH 50th anniversary book. God forbid ABC put one out.

Dragonflies, where did hear about photos being done?

Has SOD/SOW done anything similar for past anniversaries?  I just have the special OLTL and AMC farewell magazines, which are great, but...

 

I assume this means the AMC farewell People book sold well enough to justify similar books.

Do you mean special issues? I don't think they have. Just anniversary coverage in their issues.

I'd used to say that was SID just trying to sell mags but yeah, that's definitely become SOD's style as well. I think their covers are just too busy for such a small magazine.

 

Looking forward to this anniversary issue of People for GH.

Which in case of the generally covered soaps (Y&R, DAYS, GH) used to be a huge part of the issue. The other soaps got a two-four page story at best...

Years ago even the lesser-rated soaps got a number of pages. I guess that stopped after the late 90s. 

 

I will never forgive that "goodbye" issue SPW had for GL, which amounted to part of an ugly cover, and one or two pages, part of it being a trivia section not suited for the bottom of a Wikipedia page. SPW was not even good for toilet paper by the end.

SOW used to be my favorite, man did it rapidly decline around 2007 (yea, before this too but 07 seems to be the year it just started a freefall)

 

They used to have my favorite feature of any magazine, the getting to know a soap star better usually on the last page.

I remember the AMC and AW covers stories for their 20 (?) and 30 anniversary. But over the course of the 90s, SOD really only did stories on those saps which sold their issues. AMC, OLTL or B&B rarelygot anything despite having not too shabby ratings.

They had a few, albeit not many. I remember in 1996 they said no more GL covers because of low sales, although they still at least had a nice anniversary cover in early 1997. The cover situation is so pathetic now. I miss the old photoshoots. I'd take a camera phone photo from onset over these hodgpodge scribbles.

Did GL really not have a cover after 1997?

Then again, when did the mash up covers start? It became harder to define by that point who the cover was focused on. I remember them going back to at least 2004, but even then, they weren't as busy and usually had a clear show at the center. I have like every issue from 2004 to like 2007 or so, I should go look at them.

GL did have some covers after 1997, I think in part due to the show regaining some steam (1996, especially everything from spring on, was a low point in all ways). I remember one or two with Cynthia Watros, and I think there was one or two with multiple actors, and Kim Zimmer had a solo cover in 2008 or early 2009.

 

The mash up covers started in the early 80s but seriously gained steam in the mid-90s and got more and more prominent. One of the last photo shoots I remember before I stopped buying SOD was Leo/Greenlee wedding, or something along those lines.

They still did photo shoots every once in a while though. I remember one for Erica falling off the wagon in 2004.
