Magazine Art

Magazines shaped our lives, and the rest is history.

The great illustrators of the period 1850-1950 had a tremendous influence on us and the rest of the world. One of the most popular ways they presented their work was as the cover art for the mass and specialist magazines that were published under thousands of titles and in millions and millions of copies. We know today of Norman Rockwell and Maxfield Parrish, but there were hundreds and thousands of other artists whose work is now forgotten except by collectors and specialists. Some have been honored by art books about their work, but most are now simply unknown to the general public.

One reason for this undeserved obscurity is that their work is quite difficult to find. Bound volumes of these magazines, both in libraries and in the hands of private collectors, usually do not include the covers, for reasons we today find hard to imagine. You must look for individual copies of these magazines, sold as collector's items and available in variable condition. Old magazines turn up regularly on eBay and in shops, but they are expensive, and it is difficult to find, analyze, and store them in one's home. Hence MagazineArt.org.

We scan and photograph magazine covers from this era: as many as we can find, of whatever subject matter. The only requirement is that the issue must -have- a cover design. We prefer the ones that change from issue to issue, but we'll record them even if they simply list the contents of the magazine. We've had images donated, and we've picked them up where we can. At this time we have thousands of them, many of them suitable for display but all requiring some processing in Photoshop before they are presentable.

Every picture tells a story, and this 1946 ad from FIELD AND STREAM tells one worthy of a SATURDAY EVENING POST cover. So, anyway, just has hooked whom with a fishing line? Looks like a tricky way for the fisherman to meet the fisherbabe. No indication who the artist was, but we're pretty sure we've seen his work elsewhere.

Ten years after LIFE changed the way we think of news magazines, a specialized photojournalism magazine was created to appeal to the African-American community. At that time the polite descriptor was "Negroes". It was at least a small, if somewhat tentative, step in the right direction.

Only thing better than a celebrity endorsement is a celebrity's name as the brand of your product. Here's Disney licensing his characters out, as you'll see in other ads from the late 1940s. A picture of Donald, his name in big letters, and a picture of the product; even a one-year old can express a preference. Published in a 1946 issue of WOMAN'S DAY.
