British Magazine Design
This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
A History of British Magazine Design is an investigation into the design and history of British magazines over the past 170 years. It identifies turning points and new directions over a century of one of the most sensitive barometers of mass-market design taste, from the advent of two periodicals - Punch and the Illustrated London News - that changed publishing fundamentally, through to the beginnings of digital distribution.
A magazine flourishes or folds according to its audience's response to its look and feel, arguably as much as to its content. A History of British Magazine Design offers an in-depth discussion of trends and changes within graphic design, typography and photography, as well as discussing innovative print technology. It explores why magazines have chosen and changed their identities and offers new insights into the way artistic, social and technological influences have shaped magazine design and the people who drove these changes, from Charles Dickens and Herbert Ingram, through George Newnes, Nick Logan and Tyler Brule. These innovators not only revolutionized the idea of what a magazine is and how it looks, but also inspired people to fight in wars and invent the world wide web.
Heavily illustrated, A History of British Magazine Design chronicles the intricate history of British magazine design with iconic spreads extracted from the National Art Library's unparalleled and extensive archive of periodicals.
