Design Museum Collection Exhibition Series Vol.9
Magazines: 30s, The Golden Age of American Magazines

In this volume, we look back on the 1930s, when the familiar medium of the magazine developed so rapidly, and probe the social circumstances surrounding their rise and the appeal of the graphic expression of the era. On display are about 200 volumes, including such representative titles as LIFE, Fortune, DELINEATOR and THE SATURDAY EVENING POST, as well as ordinary products that give voice to the social situation of the day. Please enjoy connecting with the rich and energetic world of 1930s design through the medium of magazines.
