DRUM Magazine Covers 1951- 1980 At Bailey Seippel Gallery at Arts on Main

The Drum Magazine was founded by Jim Bailey in 1951 beginning a unique journalistic record. Besides the diverse content of this “Lifestyle Magazine” for black people it was the cover design that made the magazine unique. Photography was an important component of the DRUM Magazine and its success.   Considering the development of the cover designs over the years, one learns not only about the changes in society, in fashion and about the style of the certain period, but one is also able to retrace the change in graphic design, layout, and application of form and colour in a very impressive way.     Until 30 January 2011;
