Jugend Magazine

Jugend Magazine is a weekly cultural magazine from late 19th – early 20th Century Germany. Jugend Magazine’s style became influential in the launching of Art Nouveau movement in Germany and give this movement its German name: Jugendstill ( Youth Style) . The term is still used by contemporary graphic designers to refer to German art nouveau works coming from this period.

It would not be an overstatement to say that in Germany Jugend Magazine’s style shaped Art Nouveau movement, which was expanding all over Europe since mid 1800′s. Most typical of Jugendstil was the typography, hand-lettered fonts that heavily influenced computer and graphic design fonts used today.
