Spot Magazine Goes Digital!

wegman spot issueEver since 1982, the Houston Center for Photography has been publishing Spot magazine, a biannual publication featuring “commentary on photography and photo-based art exhibitions in Texas, the United States, and abroad.” Now, HCP has published all past issues of Spot online—they’re free, open to anyone, and are a valuable resource chronicling the history of the photography scene in Texas and beyond. Go here to see the full archive and read/download past issues.

On a similar note, over the past few years, many foundations and organizations have digitized large portions of their collections of art books and magazines. Here are a few for your reading pleasure:

Washington DC’s Smithsonian Libraries have a digitized collection of art and design materials featuring artist’s books, audio interviews, and cartoons.

In 2014, the Getty Research Institute, in collaboration with the Digital Public Library of America, digitized 100,000 art history materials, photographs, and rare documents.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Libraries have a vast collection of auction catalogs, Met exhibition catalogs, and archives from the Cloisters.

Also in 2014, UC Press made 700 books available online, including books on Philip Guston, Van Eyck, and California Modernist Art.
