The Chicagoan: Vintage magazine cover designs and illustrations

Windy City publisher J.C. Gabel this month revived “The Chicagoan” magazine, which originally was launched in 1926 and lasted 9 years. Their covers were illustrative, alluring, and dynamic – I’ve posted a few of my favorites from that period over at my Facebook page. Make sure to “LIKE” the page and you’ll be alerted to informative, interesting and alluring tidbits like this from time to time.

You can learn more about the history of the original magazine via this Amazon page for the book, The Chicagoan: A Lost Magazine of the Jazz Age.  You can learn more about the 2012 incarnation of The Chicagoan here. Below is the cover of the new magazine, which features – you guessed it – a vintage illustration of a newsstand (1929, Russell Patterson). Rush out to get it at a Chicago area newsstand – while you can.
