Digitization of 34 avant-garde arts journals produced in Europe and North America between 1848 and 1923 that document the emergence of modernity through the literature, art, and music of the period.

As part of its newly inaugurated Blue Mountain Project, the Princeton University Library proposes to create digital editions of 34 avant-garde arts journals produced in Europe and North America between 1848 and 1923, when public domain ends in the United States. Ranging in character from illustrated newsprint to lavishly designed productions, these journals open a critical window on the past while illuminating our understanding of the arts today. Because full runs in good condition are difficult to find and access, Blue Mountain aims to build a thematic research collection of historic avant-garde magazines of arts and letters for use by scholars and students around the world. The Blue Mountain will comprise a trusted digital repository of high-quality page scans, text-encoded transcriptions, and extensive descriptions, which will be made freely available over the World Wide Web.
