The Steven Lomazow Collection of American Periodicals

One of the largest periodical collection of all time. The Steven Lomazow Collection consists of almost 30 thousand issues dating back to the early 1700's.  A finer collection of periodical artwork you can't find any where else.

Title: Eyes: The Negroes’ Own Picture Magazine
Category: African-American
Volume: 1
Issue: 1
Date: April 1946
Published in: Iowa City, IA
A very rare, well-produced but unsuccessful effort at a monthly African-American oriented photographically illustrated general interest magazine. Features include “Church of the Month,” “School of the Month” and “Man of the Month.” Edited by H.I. Fontellio-Nanton and published by William Ferguson. Magazines in this era published specifically for the African-American community are notably scarce and highly sought.
