Vintage magazine art I

HarpersBazar1915-12.jpg

Magazineart.org has a great selection of covers from the golden age of illustrated American magazines. Not complete by any means but there’s some great art and design there, and the covers of Science and Invention are especially fun. Interesting to see that the technique of having a figure or object partly obscure the magazine title isn’t a recent invention at all.

  1. I was wondering that myself. Presumably it makes non-piano like sounds otherwise what would be the point? I’m sure Scriabin would have loved to get his hands on one.
