Fortune written by John Huey; historical essay by  Daniel Okrent

Overview:

The breathtaking illustrated covers of "Fortune" magazine from 1930 to 1950, combined with selected tidbits from its pages, offer an invigorating look at the underpinnings of contemporary society and its industries.

At "Fortune" the artist has always belonged in the world of work. During ks early years, founding editor Henry Luce and his staff commissioned many of the twentieth century's greatest painters and illustrators to adorn the covers of his new business magazine. Artists like Diego Rivera, Ben Shahn, Ralston Crawford, and Ernest Hamlin Baker documented modern industrial civilization on each "Fortune" cover.

These artists captured more than the assembly lines and smokestacks of industry. Fortune: The Art of Covering Business" celebrates many of the century's great commercial and artistic achievements.
