Magazine Art: Art, Film, Book, Movie, and Magazine Ads

Art prints have been around as long as printing has been around. Film, movies, cinema, as an art that moves, only a short time, but fully the memory of living humans. Books and magazines have been the subject of ads as long as the memory of humankind. Or so it would seem. Not only did magazines run ads for themselves and for other titles from the same publisher, they often ran ads for totally unconnected magazine titles. Sometimes they sold the space to the other publisher, and sometimes they simply exchanged space for ads in the other publisher's magazines. In addition, some magazine distributors and resellers ran combination ads in which one might subscribe to any number of magazines at a discounted price. Often they advertised art prints of their previously issued covers, and a number of companies built a business on providing art prints of all types.

By 1922 radio was changing from an avocation of experimenters and techno-geeks to something everyone wanted to have in their homes. The availability of commercially made complete radio receiving sets (or systems) made the changeover possible. Here RCA does its part to make radio something everyone wants. Compare the cover shown here with the back cover of the Sears radio catalog from about this time. This book, Radio Enters the Home, has been reprinted for collectors.

Unusual ad in which Gernsback crows that his radio mag has exceeded the number of advertising pages in any of the major mass-market magazines. Radio was on a roll, and you, the ad buyer, should be aware that RADIO NEWS was the best place to find customers. Or, at least, other ads. Published in the October, 1922 issue of RADIO NEWS.

Ad for RADIO NEWS from the PROCEEDINGS OF THE I.R.E., June 1920. Trying for respectability, but with the word "Amateur" still in the title -- shortly to be removed. Claimed 40,000 copies every issue; that was a lot for an enthusiast magazine before the dawn of our bubble enthusiasm for Radio in the 1920's.
