WALKER EVANS wrote and photographed for Fortune starting in 1934 (from 1945-1965 as staff-photographer and photo-editor). Of particular importance are also the beautifully illustrated covers, for which the magazine is famous (designs by Diego Rivero, Ant.Petrucelli, Herbert Bayer, Matthew Leibowitz, Paolo Garretto, Fernand Leger, etc.). The many advertisement-pages (all included in the set) give an important survey of the developments in graphic & advertising design.

Also attention to the visual arts (in 1941 no 6.Grosz, Dali, Chagall, Ernst, Tanguy, Masson etc.) and also contemporary American art. This set, fully collated and with very minor defects (detail on request) is ex-library, but in very good condition. If desired the set can be extended till the year 1990.
