Jugend was weekly cultural magazine published in Germany during the turn of the 20th Century. As we were wandering through some morning notes, we came across this particular cover, a beautifully illustrated piece from 1901. In our research, it is said that Jugend launched the German art nouveau movement, and the word Jugendstil is still used today by German graphic designers in reference to the era.

'The piece I made is again in my linoleum carving collage style.

All the "color" you see is the tone of the paper the carving was printed on. The background is an old, used nautical chart.' John Fellows
