Asia (1920s-1930s)

Not readily endowed with such inspirational traffic, Oregon-born and San Francisco-based Frank McIntosh had to rely on magazines and movies featuring such places when he found himself commissioned to produce a long series of covers for the photo-enhanced travel, culture, business and politics publication, ASIA, in the 1920s and 1930s. Regardless of gaps with his first-hand experience of the templates of deco exotica, he moved from triumph to triumph on the basis of a true affinity for primitive glamor and surreal mystery.

The output for ASIA is vast and varied, and its special qualities deserve distinct attention. First of all, there is a latent cosmopolitan sheen injected into the radiance of the wild subject, the better to capture a cosmopolitan clientele.
