Since it feels like summer was decades ago, we took a look at summer decades ago; a sampling of our periodicals. It was hot. Once upon a time.
Please enjoy this sopping sampling of sweet and sour color from 1970’s art magazines.
Art News was founded in 1902 and is the most widely circulated art magazine in the world.
Art International was based in Switzerland and ran from 1956-1984.
Novum Gebrauchsgraphik, now called Novum, is an international graphic design magazine based in Germany.
Avante Garde had a short run of only 14 issues between 1968 to 1971.
Connoisseur is a publication of self-proclaimed high-brow culture and art:
ArtForum is a contemporary art magazine.
This post continues to look at Magazine Covers throughout the decades. 1970-1979 contains hundreds of items and as usual it was difficult choosing these few to feature.
I begin with this gem from 1970, the beautifully produced, polite propaganda, Soviet Life. We have a number of full issues in our periodical collection from the late 60’s, early 70’s, and early 80’s.
And from the idealism of Lenin we move onto the eroticism of Lennon in Avant Garde magazine which is also available in our periodicals no.1(1968:Jan.)-no.14(1971:summer).
This is a strange one, the “urban renaissance” issue of this defunct inflight magazine from US Airways. “Mainliner Magazine” sounds like something for the heroine chic crowd.
