The “Magazines and War 1936-1939” exhibition was held from January to April 2007 at Madrid’s Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia. The exhibition included serial publications from more than 20 public and private collections. It was the first of its kind in undertaking a study of the role of artists in Spanish Civil War magazines.
Since the show, a website has been assembled allowing visitors to browse, 30 selected individual magazine issues from the Museum’s library and the University of Illinois’s Rare Book and Manuscript Library. You can start browsing those issues and bare witness to an era of design you most surely have not yet seen right here.
