About MODERNISM MAGAZINE: Magazine covering 20th century art and design.
Frequency: Quarterly

"We are interested in objects and the people who created them. Our coverage begins in the 1920s with Art Deco and related movements, and ends with 1980s Post-Modernism, leaving contemporary design to other magazines. Our emphasis is on the decorative arts--furniture, pottery, glass, textiles, metalwork, and so on--but we're moving toward more coverage of interiors."

"Articles should be well researched, carefully reported, and directed at a popular audience with a special interest in the Modernist movement. Please don't assume readers have prior familiarity with your subject; be sure to tell us the who, what, why, when, and how of whatever you're discussing."
