Synopsis: What does a magazine?s look and feel say about it? Sometimes more than its written content. Starting with the advent of two periodicals— Punch in 1841 and the Illustrated London News a year later—this groundbreaking study investigates the design history of British magazines over the past 170 years, right up to the beginnings of digital distribution. This groundbreaking study of a still-developing story encompasses graphic design, typography, pho­tography, and innovative print technology, and explores why magazines have looked how they do and how they have changed over time. The wealth of superb illustrations is drawn from the V&A?s National Art Library?s unparalleled archive of periodicals.

About the Author:   Anthony Quinn is a Financial Times journalist who has worked extensively in magazines throughout his career.
