How magazines shaped a nation
 
We can’t get to New York for now. But if you feel like doing some couch traveling, consider an online exhibit that showcases how magazines helped shape a nation from the 18th through the 21
st centuries.

 

 

Until April 24, the Grolier Club is featuring an exhibition called Magazines and the American Experience, featuring about 200 rare and unique titles from a collection owned by Dr. Steven Lomazow, a neurologist and magazine enthusiast, that includes more than 80,000 issues.

 

 
The exhibition is divided into two sections, beginning with a chronological history of American magazines from 1733 to the present. The second is devoted to genres of popular culture that became a major focus of American magazines in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

These include American artists and humourists, the ongoing struggle of African Americans to achieve equality, a salute to baseball, and the development of radio, television, and motion pictures.

 

Catch it online on the Grolier Club online exhibition page.
