This summer The Puskin State Museum of Fine Arts presents a unique collection of american mag covers from the end of 19th to the beginning of 20th century. It shows the changing of external image of the magazines.
At first, the newspaper module of a simple paper cover of 1850s was replaced by Victorian style with luxurious ornate decor. Then the principles have changed: the cover has been occupied by enlarged images of figures or faces.
At the turn of 19th and 20th century the idea of luxury magazines addressed to elected public has changed the requirements for cover solutions. It's appealed basically to the tastes of consumers.
The 1910s brought the Art Deco style.
The exhibition presents the covers of such publictions as Harper's Bazar, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Chap-Book and others.
The exhibition is open until 6.10.2013.
