Publication of Vell i Nou began in 1915, first coming out weekly before switching to a biweekly format. Publication was interrupted in December 1919, before resuming with a second series in April 1920. From that point on, issues came out monthly, until publication ceased in December 1921. During the course of its run, texts were published in Catalan, Spanish, and French, with the majority of contributors hailing from the Catalan literary and artistic movement known as Noucentisme, a reaction against Modernism. These contributors included Josep Aragay, Miquel Ferrà, Eugeni d'Ors, Joaquim Torres i Garcia, Ventrua Gassol, and others. Book ID: 40131
