Striking Cover Illustrations for ’50s Magazine ‘Architectural Forum’


One of the more welcome developments on the internet in recent years has been the trend whereby old magazines have re-emerged online. We’ve particularly enjoyed the likes of Rock Scene, Synapse and Fast Forward, but it’s not just music magazines — this week, for instance, a Flickr user by the name of sandiv999 uploaded the covers of a bunch of old copies of Architectural Forum dating from 1949-1953. The covers were featured on Aqua Velvet, where we spotted them, and they’re beautiful pieces of minimal modernist design — click through to check them out.
