The Story of the Face

The Story of the Face cover

16 Nov 2017

6.30pm to 9pm

‘The Story of The Face’ is published later this month. To mark the book's launch, author Paul Gorman and Nick Logan, founder/editor of The Face, will join magCulture’s Jeremy Leslie to discuss the book and the story of this hugely influential magazine.

 

The Face is a remarkable example of a magazine that both reflected its times and led them. Along with i-D and Blitz, it channelled the late 1970s post-punk energy into the shiny new romantic 80s and beyond to the third summer of love and 90s rave culture.
 

In the process, it launched the careers of many of today’s leading journalists, photographers, stylists and art directors: Dylan Jones, Julie Burchill, Corinne Day, Neville Brody, Phil Bickers, Robin Derrick to name a few.

 

We’ll hear about how the magazine began, how it developed, and its continuing influence, in a rare chance to hear directly from Nick Logan.
