American Illustrated Magazine
November 1905-October 1906 (Volumes 61-62)

American Illustrated Magazine does not explain itself. It gets right on with the story. Fiction, nonfiction, poetry, on soft, aromatic paper. Pleasantly antiquated. And illustrated of course, with photographs, like a series of bird portraits or a crocodile hunt, or with drawings that step out in front of what they were meant to describe. As if they told their own story all along.

Strapazin

First launched in 1984, Strapazin is a Swiss-based, German language comics magazine focused on the underground and independent scenes. The aesthetic of the work selected is often defined by expressive, gestural drawings filled with motion and  energy. Notable Strapazin contributors include SVA’s own Gary Panter and David Sandlin, as well as  Daniel Johnston, Le Dernier Cri and Julie Doucet.

Illustration (Japan)

Illustration (Japan)Illustration is a Japanese publication featuring illustrators and cartoonists  working in a wide range of mediums, from oil paint to digital collage.  The magazine often includes step-by-step photographic demos for artists and humorous inserts such as a page featuring the editors in a muscle-flexing contest. We also have two other journals called Illustration, one of which is from England, and the other from the USA. For the Japanese Illustration our holdings start in 1991 and continue to the present day (with some gaps, most notably between 1997-2002).
