This is the most unique pairing of art and bottle caps ever seen. The Phoenix Metal Cap Company of Chicago established it as a house organ with info on the caps, but also with art and literature. They even had a poetry editor! I bought them seven years ago and finally decided to let someone else enjoy them. They're very beautiful magazines published as the Period of Art series. It includes Sparks 1-7, the series in its entirety. The magazine covers are bold and graphic designed and made by Elmer Jacobs, a national award winner for his art. The Phoenix Flames are unique and quirky juxtaposition of advertising art (products for which the company designed caps) and fine art sprinkled with poetry, humor and history. Magazine measures 8-1/2"x11" with each issue featuring a different period of art history. In chronological order these periods are: Paleolithic, Egyptian, Greco-Roman, Oriental, Mayan, Renaisscance and 19th Century.
