The Modernist Magazine launching this month

Modernist

If you have a passion for midcentury and modernist architecture and design, you might want to subscribe to the forthcoming Modernist Magazine, although the content is very much focused on the north of England.

The magazine is the work of the Manchester Modernist Society, which organises events around the north of England, focusing on its 20th century art, design and architecture. The magazine follows a similar path, with general articles covering Oscar Niemeyer's Brazil, Esperanto, logos past and original mods, to more specific regional pieces on Liverpool, Manchester and Blackburn's heritage, to name just a few things.

With a foreword by Jonathan Meades, the magazine launches in late June with a launch party in Manchester. But you can pre-order or subscribe now at the website.

    I’m looking forward to the article on Esperanto, which has a long, strong tradition in the north-west, and in Manchester in particular.
    People have been using Esperanto, quietly, for decades. I hope that enormous commitment and effort will be recognised.

  • I agree with the comment by Bill Chapman.
    Esperanto is indeed alive and well. In fact many people do not realise how popular, as a living language, Esperanto is.
    The new study course http://www.lernu.net is now receiving 123,000 hits per month. That can’t be bad 🙂
