The Ingalls Library collection includes approximately 1,200 currently received periodical titles. That is quite simply, an overwhelming number. This ongoing series features articles that discuss the museum’s collection of more than 46,000 objects, as well as articles written by museum staff members. Additionally, articles about the museum, its history and activities are noted. New to this feature will be updates on title changes to the Recent Acquisitions area as well as the “Hidden Magazine Rack,” notable titles that do not have a coveted spot in Recent Acquisitions.
The titles in our Recent Acquisitions area are just a small fraction of the titles we subscribe to. Here are a few other titles we carry.
- Cornucopia : Turkey for Connoisseurs (A20 C819) Only published twice a year, this thick publication is filled with not only articles on art and art history, but a variety of other topics such as travel, literature, book reviews, and even recipes.
- Surface design : The Journal of the Surface Design Association (A20 S961) This quarterly publication of the Surface Design Association is chock full of information about textile arts. It spotlights artists, designers and students, current information in the textile field, and a lot more.
- American Photography: the annual of American editorial, advertising and poster, book, promotion and unpublished photography (A20 A512ph) This annual competition results in the beautiful hardcover, American Photography. It’s a wonderful publication for the photographer and collector alike.
- Marg (A20 M327) This quarterly magazine broadly covers the arts in India, from ancient Indian art to film. In fact, the current issue (June 2013) features an article covering 100 years of Bombay cinema. Issues can be accessed online as well.
- IFAR Journal (A20 S875a) IFAR is the International Foundation for Art Research. It offers “impartial and authoritative information on authenticity, ownership, theft, and other artistic, legal, and ethical issues concerning art objects”. It is always an interesting read. Included in each issue are reports of art that has been stolen or recovered.
