Design Pseuds Corner #1

The great magazine Private Eye has a long-standing column called Pseuds Corner.

I have been inspired to start my own version, for Design Pseuds. Here's the first entry, from an article in Graphis Magazine #342 (not online). Speaking of the founding of Visionaire magazine in 1991:

The patina and stylized artifice of fashion images were beginning to merge with the constructed realities of conceptual photography. And the idea of the book or magazine as purveyor of sequential narratives with illustrations attached was coming to the end of a 500-year run — challenged by conceptual art's "packages," an emerging digital/visual culture, and a generation that didn't read print so much as graze it.

What is there left to say, except "Mooooo"?
