Collins Design | 2003 | ISBN: 1856693368 | 174 pages | PDF | 58.4 MB
MagCulture explores the very latest trends and creative design styles in contemporary magazines from around the world. Its scope ranges from mass marketed to experimental titles and includes 'Dazed & Confused' (UK), 'Eat' (Japan), 'Sony Style' (US) and 'Domus' (Italy). After Jeremy Leslie’s introductory overview of the state of magazines, five illustrated essays follow all written by prominent figures in the field, focusing on consumer magazines, supplements, independent ‘microzines’ and webzines. The main section is made up of examples of over 100 innovative international magazines, starting with front covers, moving through contents pages and navigation to the features pages. Short interviews, essays and comment pieces focus on key themes such as logo design, Japanese magazines, French fashion magazines and branding.
