Welcome to the end of the twentieth century! This edition of the Magazine Museum's website highlights the years 1990-1999. The last decade of the twentieth century saw continued growth in the magazine publishing business, but it truly represents an end of an era. The 1990s was the last great decade of printed magazines. The new years of the 21st century saw the beginnings of digital and online magazines and the beginning of the end for printed ones. The 1990s were tranquil years for the magazine publishing business, compared to the confusion that follows. Magazines continued to come and go in the usual manner as before, and the larger publishing houses continued to increase their dominance. But digital change is in the air. We hope you enjoy this last loving look at the magazines of the twentieth century. The digital century is on the horizon.
You may notice a new addition to our web site. We have added a new page- The Magazine Store. At this point the Magazine Store is only an experiment. Time (and sales) will tell us if we are to continue with selling used books and magazines on this site. As of now, your only means of purchasing any of these items is by email. We may add shopping cart software in the near future. If you do wish to purchase any of these items please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will reply to your phone number or email address as soon as possible.
The Magazine Museum is a nonprofit organization, dedicated to the glorification, presentation, and preservation of magazines. We wish to acknowledge and pass on an appreciation of both the power of the printed page and the beauty of graphic visual communication. We will do this by means of five departments:
1.Magazine Museum Home Page.
2.Magazine Museum Covers and Pages.
3.Magazine Museum Databank.
4.Magazine Museum Gallery.
5.Magazine Museum Library.
The Purpose of this website is, first and foremost, to communicate with other magazine lovers.
We hope to provide information and a forum for appreciating magazines, in general, and the graphics, art, and photography of magazines, in particular.
We hope, eventually, to provide a means for buying and selling magazines and books.
