第二次世界大战后,多位拉脱维亚(Latvian)作家被逼迁移到世界各地,尤以大英帝国,加拿大及美国为最。在这陌生国度里,作家们开始推出自家的期刊并成立出版社。因此摧生了一批新生代作家。

在异地文化的抱围与冲击下,新生代作家们努力的捕捉现代思想的影向。其中最具代表性的便是Jauna Gaita (新步法) 这本杂志了。在1950至1970期间,脱维亚艺术家Ilmārs Rumpēters为该杂志设计的封面就巧妙的捕捉了这时期的精神.

Ilmārs Rumpēters目前仍然从事封面设计。你可在Jauna Gaita的官方网站一览其所有封面图。你亦 可在 Flickr.com 找到其作品。






After the second World War, many Latvian writers were relocated to different areas of the world. Many ended up in Great Britain, Canada and the USA. Living in these new lands they began their own periodicals and publication houses. A new generation of writers emerged. “Living in foreign lands and surrounded by other cultures, these writers strove to capture the influences of modernism.” * One of the magazines that surfaced during this time period was Jauna Gaita (translates roughly as “the new course”). Ilmārs Rumpēters who designed many of the covers of Jauna Gaita during the 50s through the 70s, wonderfully captured the spirit of this era.

Thanks to Dave of Grain Edit for introducing me to this amazing magazine.
