    Interview magazine (originally styled “inter/VIEW”) was started in 1969 by artist Andy Warhol and British journalist John Wilcock. Poet Gerard Malanga and avant-garde film director Paul Morrissey were also listed on the original masthead. The magazine, in its first few years, was a film critique journal subtitled “A Monthly Film Journal”. Rumor has it that the magazine was no more than an excuse for Warhol and friends to get free tickets to the New York Film Festival.

    After a time, the main topic would turn to pop culture, nicknaming itself, ‘The Crystal Ball of Pop’. Interviews during this period were printed in a loose, pure transcript form and questions were often comical and off-the-wall. For nearly 20 years, Richard Bernstein painted the covers under Warhol’s supervision. Since Warhol’s death in 1987, Peter Brant and his heirs have had ownership of the magazine. Ingrid Sischy oversaw as Editor-In-Chief from 1989 until 2008, to great success.

    In September 2018, shortly after filing for bankruptcy, the magazine returned. This time with Mel Ottenberg (Rihanna’s Creative Director) and editorial director Richard Turley (of Bloomberg Businessweek and MTV fame). Gracing the inaugural relaunch cover was issue-one subject Agnès Varda (from the film journal days). The typography uses a recent digitization of Ionic, Caslon Ionic by Commercial Classics throughout — from headlines to body copy and webfonts, all text is set in Caslon Ionic’s Regular and Italic. For some reason, the website menu uses Old Standard and Roboto. Art Director Kurt Woerpel has some more spreads on his website.
