A collection of 43 issues of Teen Angels magazine, spanning approximately 1981 to 2006. Teen Angels was founded in 1979 by San Jose-based artist David Holland. Teen Angels was a popular magazine that celebrated and featured art and writing relating to Chicano culture, cholo street culture, lowriders, pachuco culture, prison art, Southern California gangs, varrios, tattoos, and other themes. For most of its active years, the magazine was published from Milpitas, California or Rialto, California. Each issue typically includes hand-drawn portraits, poetry, photographs, comic strips, commemorative works, community bulletins, and other works. The title of the magazine varied slightly across issues, with some titled Teen Angels and others as Teen Angel's.
