Another one bites the dust. Interview magazine, which was founded by Andy Warhol in 1969, is closing.

The legacy it leaves behind is one filled with actually interesting stories of celebrities interviewing celebrities, and a bevy of groundbreaking and truly beautiful covers. With a sharp eye on up-and-comers, and celebrities who weren’t afraid to get a little weird, Interview gave us a ton of memorable covers over the past nearly 50 years.

Here are some of our favorites:
