20TH CENTURY MAGAZINES

Welcome to the 1980s.This version of our Covers & Pages section highlights the magazines started between the years 1980-1989.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.Of the four magazines shown here,only one-Vanity Fair, is still in publication.But this is not to say that these four magazines were not meaningful publications. While they lasted they were a  significant part of their society, with a great deal to offer their readers.While they lasted they were exciting!

PHOTO/DESIGN.US.AUGSEP 1984-SEPOCT1992. Photo/Design was one of those photography magazines that presents its wonderful photos in a beautiful package. This magazine was an exceptionally well designed publication. It was attractive, inspiring, and quite informative. Photo/Design lasted only nine years. It barely made it out of the eighties, but its 48 issues made a brief, but lasting impression on the professional photography world of the 1980s. Photo/Design was an excellent example of the intricacies of the magazine publishing business of its time. In its short life of only nine years, Photo/Design had four separate publishers: Ziff-Davis, Lakewood, Billboard, and Primedia.

PHOTO PRESENTE. FRANCE. 1983 #1-12. Photo Presente was a French photography magazine that, unfortunately lasted only 12 issues.Les Grands Maitres de la Photo was Filipacchi's Photo magazine's homage to 12 great photographers, one photographer per issue. It was a sophisticated look at the artistry and historic significance of each photographer. Photo Presente displayed the works of Jacques Henri Lartigue, Jay Meisel, Donald McCullin, Jeanloup Sieff, Nadar, William Klein, Pete Turner, Robert Doisneau, David Bailey, Eugene Atget, Bill Brandt, and Erwin Blumenfeld. Too bad there could not have been more issues of this exciting and informative publication.

STEP-BY-STEP GRAPHICS. US. 1985-2002. Step-By-Step Graphics, later to become Step Inside Design, was an invaluable tool for the graphic designer. The magazine covered topics on design, editorial layout, computer graphics, illustration,photography,production, typography, and more.The bi-monthly publication provided information, as well as inspiration. It was well designed, as well as visually exciting. In short, Step-by-Step Graphics was everything a professional graphic designer would want in a monthly trade journal. It's successor, Step Inside Design, lasted until 2009.Step-By-Step Graphics is a sorely missed tool for the Graphic Designer.

VANITY FAIR. US. MARCH 1983 - PRESENT We present here the first year of the second coming of Conde Nast's Vanity Fair. The first version was published from 1914 to 1936. That early 2oth century version of Vanity Fair was not the first magazine of that title. There were two weekly magazines of the same title in the19th century. This fourth version of Vanity Fair was a cultural icon, a social event of importance to many. But the magazine has since lost a little of its original promise of excitement and meaning. This is not to say that Vanity Fair is not still a good magazine. Vanity Fair still has a great deal to offer its readers.
