The 1960s saw All Hands magazine return to a color cover. Starting with single colors, two colors and later adding more, the cover featured full-color photography and artwork by the end of the decade. Although photography remained a staple of the magazine’s appearance, detailed illustrations also graced many covers during that time. Many of the December issues, for example, featured hand-drawn, holiday-themed illustrations. In 1969, the magazine adopted a new logo. It also took on the look of the pop art that was popular among young Americans at the time, featuring bright colors and abstract art. The conflict in Vietnam and the role of naval aircraft and carriers became important topics covered in All Hands near the end of the decade.
