Another Swastika Heard From

Although I have no intention of writing another book on The Swastika, I continue to acquire Swastika artifacts when unusual ones appear. This magazine, La Svastica, an Italian weekly journal of politics, art and science was not intrinsically a pro-Nazi organ, although this cover suggests otherwise.

The masthead, while not the most appealing type choice is, however, an extremely clever iteration of the swastika itself.
