About this item

In the second half of the nineteenth century, urbanization and growing literacy reinforced the production of books and periodicals of various genres with journals and magazines at the center, and the illustrated press became an important constituent of periodical culture. In turn-of-the-century Russia radical changes occurred in the visual arts--stage design, painting and the graphic arts--bringing Russian art closer to Western European trends and reinforcing narratives imported from Europe, moving Russia toward international European modernism. Addressed to the artistically educated elite and sophisticated reader, the art periodicals became active participants in contemporary artistic culture. This cultural-historical study focuses on the World of Art, The Golden Fleece, and Apollo, which were the symbols of the print revival, modernity and Europeanization in Russia and influenced graphic designers of the younger generation. The book discusses the emergence of the art periodical press in Russia; its technological and historical preconditions; and explores the journals as art objects. It analyzes all components--layout, cover, illustrations, etc., as well as meanings provided by written text in a socio-historical context.
