Das PlakatArts:Search has recently embarked on a major two-year project to digitize most of the leading European and American art journals published between the 1870s and the early 1920s - making several of them available for the first time online. It will be a significant contribution to art history scholarship and will open up many new areas of research.

  • We are aiming for 100% accuracy when proof-reading the OCR text. This will enable ReVIEW to be used in conjunction with translation and text-to-voice services

  • Nearly all of the titles below have been digitized and will available on Arts: Search over the next 18 months.

  • In most cases we are digitizing complete runs of journals.

  • We are developing a new interface for the ReVIEW database to make it easier to search the vast number of journals that we are digitising

  • All of the titles will be cross-searchable, together with the Arts:Search databases Design Abstracts Retrospective and Design ProFILES


ReVIEW will eventually include many hundreds of thousands of pages of text and images. When complete, it will be an invaluable resource for research into the history of the Aesthetic movement, Art Nouveau, the Arts and Crafts movement, the origins of Modernism, the artists and designers associated with the Wiener Werkstätte, the early days of the Bauhaus, the flowering of the poster, the art of World War One, the genesis of Art Deco, the influence of Japan, the major international exhibitions such as Paris 1889 and 1900, Glasgow 1901, Turin 1902, St. Louis 1904, Brussels 1910, and San Francisco 1915, and the hundreds of thousands of architects, artists and designers active during these years.

Scroll down this page to view the journals included in the ReVIEW project at a glance, or click on the journal titles, or the sub-headings on the left hand menu, for more detail on the journals.
