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.

Ad for the Standard American Cook Book, as published in the March, 1900 issue of the WOMAN'S HOME COMPANION. This was published by The Crowell & Kirkpatrick Co, the publishers of the magazine, and could be bought for 80 cents, including a yearly subscription to the magazine. At that time the magazine sold for ten cents a copy. A nice copy of the 1897 first edition will cost a lot more than that today.

It was pretty common for magazine publishers to sell packages of other publishers' magazines, with or without their own titles included. Here are small versions of plenty of major magazines of the day. From the January, 1923 issue of RADIO NEWS. Source: Magazine collector Steve Davis Restoration by: magscanner

This ad for both magazines was on the back of the Experimenter's Guide #2, for Radio-Phone Receivers. Both issues shown are July, 1922 issues, and this ad probably appeared a couple of months past July.

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.

QST hadn't been around very long before they ran this ad, aimed at the ham geek community and illustrating important lessons of technical life: typical QST stick-figure operators, too. Published in the February, 1917 issue of EVERYDAY MECHANICS. Source: Magazine collector Steve Davis Restoration by: magscanner

Ad for "Direst Process" plates for printing colored magazine covers. The covers shown are from late 1904 and early 1905. Published in a 1905 issue of THE INLAND PRINTER. Not exactly an ad for a magazine, but definitely an ad about magazines. We made this one extra large so you can see more of the detail.

House ad for POPULAR RADIO, from the January, 1925. Get your friends, and their friends, to subscribe, and you'll collect CREDITS that can be exchanged for all the parts you need to build a radio such as the Cockaday designs. At 2000 to 3000 CREDITS per radio, this works out to about 40 to 60 one-year subscriptions. You'd better have a lot of friends interested in radio. By the way, this ad sets the record for the most text of any ad page on the magazineart.org website. Source: Magazine...
