Arts & Architecture (1929–1967) was an American architecture, landscape, and arts magazine. It was published and edited by John Entenza from 1940–1962 and David Travers 1962-1967. Arts & Architecture played a significant role both in Los Angeles’s cultural history and in the development of American modernism in general.
I found these magazine covers by chance when doing research for my editorial project I’m working on at the moment and think they are really beautiful, eye-catching, well designed magazine covers. The covers were designed by several different designers like for example John Follis, Ken Chapman, Alvin Lustig and Herbert Matter.
If you haven’t seen this already, the arts and architecture website has an amazing archive of the magazine from 1945-1967 available in PDF format.
