Form Magazine Archive Online

form_mag_cover.jpg 

Famous German design magazine Form has puts its whole archive online in the form of scanned pages. It provides a page by page account of exactly how the magazine looked, along with a search box to find particular items of interest. Unfortunately the scans are not of great quality - iffy whites, washed out blacks, and in some cases they didn’t seem to set the scanner for doing magazine photos so the dot pattern printing causes moire patterns. Nevertheless, a great archive for anyone interested in the history of design from a European point of view (and of course who reads German).
