In Today’s Mail — March 21, 2013

The Visual Arts Library has around 400 current periodical subscriptions. Everyday, from all around the world, by way of delivery services private and socialized, at least a few and sometimes a shining heap arrive at 380 2nd Ave..

Following are the covers of two magazines that arrived today. I think are they are sharp.

First, Novum and its World of Graphic Design, a title for which we have holdings dating back to 1950 when it was called Gebrauchsgraphik: International advertising art.

Description taken from page 2 of the magazine:

For the cover of this month’s novum we chose the mold made paper ZERKALL LITHO VI (270 gsm) with 75% cotton.  Further information: Marco Bölling realised the motive in letterpress and iris printing

Novum, April 2013.

Second, we have School Arts, an art education title that we have going back to 1992. The piece is a product of a high school studio lesson designed and delivered by Caroline Nay. The work itself is by Dan Prach. The lesson is fully explained in the magazine, but involves either a botanical or animal subject, and features contour line drawings transferred onto a base painting. Very sharp.
