Janello and Jones, former editors at Collins Publishers, have illustrated chapters written by eight magazine journalists with the photos and artwork of innumerable talents in this history of publishing that is more an anecdotal composite than in-depth analysis. While captioned photographs build an engaging portrait of the influence of magazines on American history, the essays often recall specific visuals that are not reproduced, and recollections of the last three or four decades outweigh discussion of earlier eras. However, many personalities, talents, words and images of the consumer magazines world are brought to life in this 250th birthday present to the industry -----From Library Journal: Americans have an inexhaustible interest in magazines, and ready access to the wide range of opinions and information found there strengthens our democracy. This lavishly illustrated book celebrates a quarter-millennium of diversity in American magazines. (Curiously, as this book demonstrates, hard economic times have helped launch some of the best titles.) The founding personalities of the magazine industry are described, and lively, informative, up-to-date essays weigh the impact of advertising, photojournalism, and graphic design. A timeline of major magazines founded since 1741 is included"------overseas shipping will require additional postage, overseas shipping (outside of Canada and the USA ) will require additional postage, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
