COVERS & PAGES 35. 1920 -1929
20TH CENTURY MAGAZINES

Welcome to the roaring twenties. This version of our Covers & Pages section highlights the magazines started in the years 1920 to 1929. This time we're presenting seven of the most exciting and significant magazines of that decade.

Architectural Digest is a well-respected architecture and design monthly,still being published by Conde Nast. The French Arts et Metiers Graphique,and the German Gebrauchsgraphik were both graphic design trade journals. Fruit Garden and Home was a home magazine,now known as Better Homes & Gardens. Golden Book was a short-lived fiction monthly with exciting covers. The New Yorker is a city weekly best known worldwide for its cartoons and memorable covers. Time magazine is a weekly news publication,now being published by Meredith Corporation. Of the seven publications, four are still being published. As we move up through the twentieth century,the odds are noticeably improving on magazines still being published currently.These seven shining examples of early 20th century publishing were quite visually exciting. Use of art work was prolific. Big name illustrators are becoming more well known. Use of photography reproductions is increasing,and printing quality is  improving. But quality photo engraving is still in the future for most publications. The roaring twenties was an exciting time. That excitement shows in the magazines of the time. Check them out.

﷯ ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST. 1920 - PRESENT. Let's be honest here, Architectural Digest is highlighted here, more for what the magazine has become- a highly respected classy design monthly with nine international editions, rather than for its humble beginnings, in 1920, as a local California architecture trade quarterly. The Architectural Digest has become so influential that it is considered by most as the "byword for living well". The original publication was founded by John C. Brasfield, changing owners only twice in its hundred years, first to C.T.Knapp in 1965, and finally to Conde Nast in 1993. The quarterly in its first decade was a business-like trade journal with one-color graphics of typical average quality photographs and very little inside art work. The Architectural Digest must have been significant enough to its readers in its early years, it has lasted for a hundred years.

ARTS ET METIERS GRAPHIQUES.

001.FRANCE.1929JAN#9

﷯ ARTS ET METIERS GRAPHIQUES.FRANCE. SEPTEMBER 15,1927 - MAY 15,1939. Arts et Metiers Graphiques was a French graphic design magazine. It covered design,typography, illustration,fine art,advertising art,photography, historical calligraphy,and more.
The journal published 68 issues from 1927 to 1939. The magazine was founded by Charles Peignot and published by Deberny et Peignot, a type foundry and manufacturer of printing equipment. AMG was similar to the German magazine,Gebrauchsgraphik,but differed slightly in subject matter and readers. The German magazine was more of a practical trade publication. The French magazine was focused more on the arts. Both magazines provided an important service to 1920s and 30s Europe.

﷯ FRUIT GARDEN & HOME. US. 1922-1924. BETTER HOMES & GARDENS.1924-PRESENT. Better Homes and Gardens began its first two years as Fruit Garden and Home. The magazine, published by Edwin Thomas Meredith and edited by Chesla C. Sherlock, was all about family and home. Its focus was on homemakers for the past ninety five years. What separates this home magazine from all others was its insistence on editing its content with both men and women in mind. Meredith Corporation has always published its magazine as an aid and an inspiration to its readers, hoping to improve their quality of life, as well as their homes. The magazine's readers responded by making Better Homes and Gardens the fourth largest selling magazine in the United States.

﷯ GEBRAUCHSGRAPHIK.GERMANY.1924-1944. Gebrauchsgraphik was one of the first graphic design magazines in Europe. It began by following the post World War I design and typography movement- Jugenstil, with articles on graphic design, advertising, publicity, book design, and typography. The magazine, published by Phonix Illustrationsdruck und Verlag, was founded by H.K. Frenzel. First published in Berlin, it was moved to Munich after WWII and suspended in the years 1944-1950. The name for the publication was changed to Novum Gebrauchsgraphik in 1971, and then to Novum in 1996. Gebrauchsgraphik has always been a quality trade publication, leading the way for the Swiss magazine, Graphis, begun in 1944.

﷯ GOLDEN BOOK. US. JAN 1925 - SEP 1935. The Golden Book Magazine was a monthly fiction magazine that lived for only ten short years. It was a journal of fiction, true stories, poetry, essays, and plays. The Golden Book presented quality writing, for those who wanted a meaningful reading experience. But the magazine may have been a disappointment for anyone looking for exciting inside graphics on its pages. The Golden Book's best feature, however, was its wonderful covers. The art work on its covers was probably the main reason it is remembered today. The magazine presented some of the best artists of the period on its covers, names like Artzybasheff, Gordon Ertz, Amy Hogeboom, G.M. Richards, Constance Wheeler, where there every month. For our money, The Golden Book had the best covers of any magazine in the 1920s.

﷯ NEW YORKER. US. FEB.21,1925 - PRESENT. Yes, the New Yorker! We challenge anyone to find a city magazine more meaningful to its community in America, than the New Yorker. The magazine was founded almost one hundred years ago by Harold Ross as a weekly source of information and entertainment for New York City dwellers. For current citizens of the City it is still fulfilling that function. But for the rest of the world, the New Yorker has become a weekly presentation of wonderfully imaginative covers on the outside, and the world's best collection of cartoons on its pages. There have been many books published highlighting The New Yorker's covers and cartoons. We are showing here only a few highlights of the 1920s. We could easily show a lot more.

﷯ TIME. US. MARCH 03,1923 - PRESENT. Time magazine was started in March 03, 1923 by Henry Luce and Briton Hadden. Time, along with its sister publication, Life, were the success stories of the magazine world in the Twentieth Century. Time was the premier news weekly. It set the standard for all those news publications to come. As Mott states in his A History of American Magazines, “Mediocre nor commonplace was never Time”. The hallmarks of Time magazine were breath of coverage, comprehensiveness, and orderly arrangement of the week's news by way of its various departments. Here are some examples of those department pages, along with some early covers. We cannot overstate Time magazine's significance as a news journal in the last century. After nearly a hundred years, Time magazine remains a publishing giant.
