magCulture: New Magazine Design

by Jeremy Leslie

Harper Design International
October 2003
ISBN: 1856693368


Jeremy Leslie, author of "Issues: New Magazine Design," and long-time magazine designer and art director of such publications as Blitz, Time Out, and Hot Air magazines has put together a stunning collection of commentary and images marking contemporary magazine trends in "magCulture: New Magazine Design."

The product of ongoing collaboration between editors and designers, magazines have played a huge role in informing the design principles found in print media of the 20th century. In "magCulture," Leslie looks at why. He discusses the relationship that design has to each magazine's editorial bent, and how the principal of preceding and succeeding issues informs a magazine's style choices. The relatively recent use of computers in magazine layout and the multimedia boom also play key roles in magazines that lead the pack in design, and those magazines, in turn, are heavily scrutinized by the newspaper industry when it comes to making their design choices.

In "magCulture," Jeremy Leslie gathers some of the premier voices in art direction in print today: the art director for Rolling Stone and the creative director of The Guardian included. Topics include branding, magazines and the web, the influence of magazine design on the newspaper industry, and the emergence of high-end microzines, that have little need to rely on the fat coffers of corporate advertising.

But the real appeal of this 9 " x 11 " book is the 150 pages of images from the forerunners of magazine design in the 21st century, a beautiful array of scans that will be scoured and appreciated by artists and design-types from all realms.

"magCulture" hits the shelves on October 14, and is available from Harper Collins here.
