Beach Culture the Third Issue August/September 1990

Ian Birch looks back at the third issue of Beach Culture , the magazine that made David Carsonโ€™s name before he went on to art direct Raygun . โ€˜ A legendary cover which earned Carson more than 150 design awards. The magazine only lasted six issues and, as Carson told Huck in 2011, โ€˜ we did every issue like it was our last โ€™. Geof Kern submitted the photograph for an article inside but โ€˜the surprise quality and compositional strength made it the coverโ€™ (from โ€˜The End of Printโ€™ by Lewis Blackwell, Laurence King Publishing, 1995).
