I came across some images of a few fantastic and imaginative layouts from some of those great magazines of '40s and '50s - like McCall's and Harper's Bazaar. These wonderful layouts, which show innovative typography and imagery, are considered to be part of the Golden Age of magazine design that came about after WWII. Oh where, oh where, have they gone?
Chronicle Books sent me a review copy of Rex Ray: Art + Design and I had to jump right in. I have to be honest, I didn't know who Rex Ray was, at first, but after delving into this book, I had one of those "Oh HIM" moments.
