Apparel Arts Magazine questions and resources

Danny Lewandowski

New in Town
Hello! I'm the owner/designer/curator of the Paul Rand website at www.paulrand.design. As you may know, he is one of America's most celebrated graphic designers. Apparel Arts was where he began his 60+ year career. I have a few issues in my personal collection but have images on the website of many others.

I wanted to ask the community if anyone has issues in their personal collection that they would consider sharing pictures and/or scans of to be used on the site. It is 100% educational, I do not make any money from it, it's been a labor of love since 2005.

I'm also looking for the cover of the July 1939 issue.

Please see this page for what is currently available: https://www.paulrand.design/work/Apparel-Arts.html

Also, I recently discovered that the New York Public Library system is part of the ProQuest.com research tool. They have many issues available, from 1932-1958! If you have an NYPL library card, go to search.proquest.com, login, click "Publications" in the gray navigation bar. Search "apparel arts" and check out all the goodness!

Thanks, everyone for any help possible!

Amazing website!!! Will now have to peruse it thoroughly...

Am I right in thinking that many of the illustrations (the fashion plates) were also printed in Esquire mag?
