Visual Arts Library – Periodicals Collections

Just a toe in the water — wide ranging selections from Visual Arts Library Picture & Periodicals Collections, an impressive archive of 20th century magazine covers, including the American music magazine Etude, Vanity Fair, Travel (great depth of colour), and from 1905 the austere-looking Youth’s Companion.

I particularly like Movie (edited by Ian Cameron), which was first published in 1962 and helped England to keep up with the more cutting-edge French films, influenced as it was by the French magazine Cahiers du Cinema.

Thanks to Adrian Shaughnessy for drawing attention to this fascinating collection.
