66 issues of Campo Grafico were published between 1933 and 1939 by a loosely confederated group of Italian printers, typographers, designers, and photographers. Subtitled "Magazine Of Aesthetic And Graphical Technique" the contents were designed and printed during off-hours at various presses throughout Italy and assembled and distributed in a similarly freeform fashion. The results were pure examples of Maud Lavin's phrase "design in the service of commerce," and a magnificent demonstration of the unity of the arts and technological life.
