COVERS & PAGES 29. 1990-1999
20TH CENTURY MAGAZINES

Welcome to the 1990s.This version of our Covers & Pages section highlights the magazines started between the years 1990-1999.We present here four of the most exciting magazines of the decade. The last few decades of the twentieth century saw the magazine business in a transient state. Magazines were coming and going, and changing owners, on a massive scale. But a surprising number of magazines started in the 1990s are still in publication. Of the 603 magazines, listed in our Databank, and started in the 1990s- 341 are still in print. The 1990s was an exciting decade for magazines. Check out these four exciting examples.

FLAUNT.US.FALL 1998-PRESENT. Flaunt is one of those magical magazines that appear all too infrequently. Its magic is not in its subject matter, so much as in its spirit- its joy of printing and graphic display. The subject matter was simple enough- contemporary culture with emphases on that culture's most prominent and creative members. What really separates this periodical from the rest is it's willingness to explore the boundaries of the printing process. Its use of die cuts, and half pages, and inserts, and embossing...has been very exciting, and courageous. All of those extra bits of printed magic were surely expensive, and surely made the production processes much more complicated. Flaunt has been a joy to behold for many years now.

NEST.01.000.1997FALv1#1

NEST. US. FALL 1997-2004. Nest was one of those publications that was like no other magazine. Two main things made Nest unique- its looks and its content. Its identifying looks began with its unique logo which, unfortunately, changed several times during its life. Also adding to its unique looks was its brave use of distinctive printing techniques, such as rounded corners, embossing, partial pages, die-cut formats, and more. What really made Nest stand out, particularly from other interior design magazines, was its insistence on presenting real homes rather than show-room designs. For 26 issues "real homes" meant the entire spectrum of living quarters. Nest showed tree houses, as well as Fifth Avenue luxury apartments, mansions and igloos, submarine living quarters, as well as town houses, Bill Gate's new home and Liberace's one-of-a kind Las Vegas apartment. Nest showed all types of living nests with joy and wonder for 7 short years.
