Item description for Mag-Art: Innovation in Magazine Design by Charlotte Rivers...

Practical and informative tips and advice on the key issues of magazine design.

The magazine industry is a perpetual innovator when it comes to graphics and design. With a sell-by date for each issue and extreme competition for the consumer dollar, magazines are consistently upping the ante and challenging designers to create more interesting packages with eye-catching design elements that standout visually ans communicate the material inside to the consumer. As with most disposable products, good design can transform the magazine from a source of information to a covetable, collectable object. Mag-Art, like its conceptual predecessors in this series CD-Art and DVD-Art, looks at an international collection of innovative graphic design within the continually developing area of print magazine packaging and design. From mass-market to limited-circulation and exclusive, Mag-Art explores both the creative inspiration behind the work (the artwork and photography, typography, paper stock and materials, printing techniques, finishes, and formats) and the practical considerations and restrictions (inclusion of essential advertisements, navigation, credits, captions, and budgets). Case studies of 50 magazines analyze format, pagination, layout, art direction, production values, style, etc, and explore how photographers, illustrators, and stylists work with art editors. Interviews with 10 art directors reveal emerging trends in the industry, what makes a magazine successful, and how good design works.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mag-Art: Innovation in Magazine Design?

Too untraditional for me...  Jan 26, 2008
This isn't what I thought it was going to be. After rereading the description I wouldn't say it isn't accurate but when it says mag "art" it really means art. I'm a Journalism Major with an emphasis in magazines. I've started two magazines and published 50 spreads and 3 covers. I didn't feel that anything in this book reflected design that could be used in realistic publications because it wasn't content driven. A lot of the featured spreads had nothing but photographs and a small little caption. If I wanted photography suggestions I would've boughten a photography book.

Sadly I wouldn't recommend this book unless you had breezed through it first... That was probably my mistake.
