Volume 14, No. 5, September/October 1960

Nancy Lyman [Editor]

Nancy Lyman [Editor]: PRINT: AMERICA'S GRAPHIC DESIGN MAGAZINE. NYC: Volume 14, No. 5, September/October 1960. Perfect bound and side stapled thick printed wrappers. 98 pp. Illustrated articles and advertisments. Multiple paper stocks. Interior unmarked and clean. Wrappers lightly edgeworn and creased, but a very good or better copy.

8.5 x11 perfect-bound magazine with 98 pages of editorial content and advertising. Print was devoted to showcasing the best in American Graphic Design, circa 1960. For this goal, the Publishers used a wide variety of paper stocks and printing styles for each issue. Print in the early 1950s remind me of Herbert Spencer's Typographica, but without the cultural pretensions of the English magazine. Print was meat and potatoes compared to Spencer's elegant souffles.

Contents include:

  • a tribute to Walter Paepcke written and designed by Herbert Bayer
  • 10 years of the Aspen Design Conference: features writings by György Kepes, Herbert Bayer, Elliot Noyes, Craig Ellwood, Olle Eksell, Claire Falkenstein and many others.
  • Top Drawer features designs by Saul Bass and Ladislav Sutnar
  • Features include Top Drawer; and Books in print.

PRINT started out under the auspices of William Rudge and played a significant role in the fine press and typographic movements in the mid- twentieth century. Each issue of this beautifully-designed and printed quarterly magazine stands as an essential reference for the private press and fine printing activity of the period.
