Bookworm

The Face magazine,

The Face magazine
Magazines are a unique document of the spirit of their time. The Face, designed by Neville Brody between 1981 and 1986, is a good example of total graphic work. Focused on music and fashion, its style was highly influential and largely defined the aesthetics of the 1980s.

Over the Bookworm sessions we will explore several iconic magazines that capture the spirit of the era in which they were designed. We will place the magazines in their context and try to define what makes them relevant in the history of 20th century editorial design. The Bookworm sessions are guided by Andreu Jansà, librarian and curator of the Enric Bricall Reserve Fund.
