"The Studio. A Magazine of fine and Applied Art. One Shilling, Monthly, London"
"The Studio Magazine was founded in 1893 by Charles Holme as an informative monthly periodical on contemporary fine and decorative art. The Studio always had an extensive readership which included the UK, Europe and North America in particular. It initially started out by championing contemporary art and design movements.
It was a firm believer in the Arts & Crafts philosophy as well as the ideals of the Art Nouveau movement, two styles that were not always happy being in each others company. The publicity generated by the magazine helped to familiarise Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow School of designers throughout Europe.
The Studio also highlighted and helped to promote a number of artists, designers and decorative styles, throughout its life. It championed Aubrey Beardsley and commissioned the artist to produce the first cover of the magazine in 1893. It also had regular features promoting anything from nineteenth century Japanese prints to North American Studio pottery." (TheTextileBlog.com)
