Show One’s Color

THE sixties and seventies were a great time for leftist intellectuals. Dreaming of a better and fairer society, they would retrieve in their studies to write essays that, hopefully, changed the world. These writing could end up in magazines like ‘Wijsgierig perspectief op maatschappij en wetenschap’.  Important ideals ask for a serious layout. Illustrations and photos were excommunicated and the only frolic aspect allowed was the subtle change of colors on the cover. The magazines on this page are from the late sixties and early seventies. More examples > ‘Wijsgierig perspectief op maatschappij en wetenschap’.
