Published between 1918 and 1932, the Dutch magazine Wendingen is a masterpiece of editorial design of all times. The man behind the publication was the architect Hendricus Theodorus Wijdeveld. He was responsible for the contents of the magazine and also for its exquisite presentation: a distinctive square format with japanese binding.
Aesthetic retrospective of the 20th century
The covers of Wendingen reflect the different artistic trends of the early past century, such as Art Nouveau, Expressionism, Art Déco, Constructivism, Neoplasticism and Modernism.
Elisava’s library presents a selection of ten numbers, including some legendary examples like the Eileen Gray, Frank Lloyd Wright or Diego Rivera issues.
