magCulture Meets returns with a special evening celebrating the legendary 1960s magazine Nova.
The monthly British women’s magazine was both controversial and influential over its ten years; controversial due to its explicit support for the new political, social and sexual attitudes of the liberal sixties era, and influential because of the powerful art direction and design used to express the new attitudes. This combination of revolutionary content and brilliant visual remains as influential as ever today.
The event coincides with the reissue of the book ‘Nova 1965-1975’, a significant book that’s been out of print for some time (read our recent review of the book).
We’ll be joined for the evening by one of the people behind the book, Nova art director David Hillman, as well as the magazine’s fashion editor Caroline Baker. The two will be in conversation with magCulture’s Jeremy Leslie, and there will be time for audience questions. Signed copies of the book will be available.
Tuesday 24 September
Doors opens at 6.30pm and the talk will kick off at 7pm followed by an audience Q&A.
270 St John Street
