From Library Journal:
Americans have an inexhaustible interest in magazines, and ready access to the wide range of opinions and information found there strengthens our democracy. This lavishly illustrated book celebrates a quarter-millennium of diversity in American magazines. (Curiously, as this book demonstrates, hard economic times have helped launch some of the best titles.) The founding personalities of the magazine industry are described, and lively, informative, up-to-date essays weigh the impact of advertising, photojournalism, and graphic design. A timeline of major magazines founded since 1741 is included. This would be a fine companion volume for libraries owning John Tebbel's The Magazine in America, 1741-1990 ( LJ 6/15/91), which has much more information but no illustrations. Recommended for popular journalism collections.
