Knowledge magazine, 1961

I couldn't understand why I kept being drawn back to this cover from Knowledge ("The colour magazine which grows into an encyclopaedia") until I saw a 1972 book called The Astrological Significance Of Stonehenge. Suddenly the giant machine looked like a megalith, and the atomic signs in the sky the stars, the striving for a magical future through technology harking back to the past. (this may just be the crazy fruits of thinking about all this too much, of course ...)
