Electronics Illustrated
was a hobbyist and experimenters' magazine started in May 1958 by Fawcett Publications, who published Mechanix Illustrated. The magazine was published monthly from 1959 to 1961 then bi-monthly until November 1972.
Electronics Illustrated ended with the November 1972 issue and some of the content was continued in Mechanix Illustrated. The circulation was 300,000 but Fawcett claimed there was a shrinking market for electronics magazines and they wanted to focus on the larger Mechanix Illustrated audience of 1.5 million readers. This followed Ziff-Davis's merger of Electronics World with Popular Electronics in January 1972.
