The Home magazine, cover design by Dahl Collings

Sydney Ure Smith?s luxurious 1930s women?s journal, ?The Home? and his ambitious Art and Design journal of 1949 celebrated modern Australian art, architecture, fashion, photography and design.

The Home magazine was particularly luxurious, featuring gorgeous cover art and typography by leading modernist artists, designers, photographers and illustrators. This issue features a collaged lifestyle image targeting the active modern woman created by Dahl Collings.
