In 1920, Le Corbusier, Amédée Ozenfant and Paul Dermée joined forces to found the magazine "L'Esprit nouveau". The first columns dealt with the fine arts, engineering aesthetics, architecture, urban planning and the decorative arts, but thanks to the contribution of numerous contributors, the themes were extended to painting, sculpture, literature, music, cinema, theater, sport, health, healthy living, the aesthetics of modern life, and more. Each issue includes critical, artistic, literary, musical and sometimes political articles, press clippings, book and magazine lists, and reproductions of works of art related to Cubism. The magazine ceased publication in 1925 / 2 vol. set.
