USModernist® Magazine Library

Access to legacy publications has never been more critical for preservation, and today's architects, realtors, owners, sellers, and buyers don't have an easy way to research and view magazine coverage - especially from the early to mid-20th century - until now.

You can be part of this breakthrough documentation project by contacting us to donate magazines we need (see chart below) or donate funds so we can acquire more magazines.  USModernist is a 501C nonprofit and donations are tax-deductible. Call 919.740.8407 or email george@usmodernist.org to verify before sending. If requested, we provide free ground FedEx shipping from anywhere in the US.
