As an introduction to a series of posts I will be doing in the near future concerning Magazine Covers, I would like to present Alysha Colangeli’s collage, currently on display in the library. Alysha, a graduating Fine Arts student, has worked with me in the picture collection for the past 2+ years. I will be sad to see her go. She leaves us with this parting gift, completely comprised of color copies of magazine covers from our collection. She used at least one from every chronologically divided subdivision: Pre-1920, 1920-1929, 1930-1939, 1940-1949, 1950-1959, 1960-1969, 1970-1979, 1980-1989, 1990-1999, 2000-2009, 2010-2019. Please enjoy, and make sure to come take a gander in person.
