Review Text

  • By Anthony Quinn on 8 May 2010

    William Owen's 1991 Magazine Design follows directly in the footsteps of Ruari Maclean's 1969 OUP book of the same title - which claimed to be the world's first book on the subject. Both are an excellent read with a good range of examples. Owen benefits from the exponential improvement in design and production capabilities and he admits to his limitations, such as having little to say about the topic outside the UK and US, and being focused on the 20th century - though there's a good section on Russian constructivism and an amazing issue of Rodchenko's SSSR Na Stroike.Owen is still (2010) a design practitioner, running the Made by Many practice, and this book has a personal feel - he is exploring the topic along with the reader - with lots of opinions to make your own mind up about.The last few pages, on the 'electronic age' are very much a tag-on, a view I think I would have expressed even then. But this is a quibble; I doubt if anyone with an interest in magazine design would regret getting hold of a copy.Tony
