If you’re like me, and I know I am, you read these kinds of computer magazines in this time period, but the ones we had here in the USA didn’t quite meet up to the cover girl standards of the Yugoslavians! Read on:
Računari was a computer magazine of the former Yugoslavia which lasted from 1984 until the late 1990s – surviving the economic turbulence and wars of the 1980s-90s, and even outlasting the country itself. The title simply means “computers”
in Bosnian– and its content was just that: very bland, very technical, nothing flashy… but its covers were another matter entirely.
Despite the very low-key tech content, the guys at Računari decided to put some spice on just about every cover. Nearly every issue featured a ravishing Eastern Bloc Beauty straddling computer hardware. Let’s have a look at some of these covers spanning the late 1980s and into the early 1990s. Enjoy.
