Recaptured: A Magazine of Roadside American Time Travel

MagMaker / September 18, 2013

It’s a pleasure to find a magazine that transports you to another world — and all the more so when that world is  visible for all to see… once you learn to look for it.

“Recaptured” magazine does this by collecting images of vintage American roadside signs and typography. Curated by Bill Rose, creator of the Recapturist website, his companion Flipboard mag documents fading signs, structures and buildings “that are in danger of being lost forever as ‘progress’ continues to win the war against preservation.”


Follow along as Rose discovers the hidden history of midcentury America in “Recaptured” on Flipboard.
