Century: A Southwest Journal of Observation and Opinion was produced in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with a nation-wide and international audience. Century ran for 74 issues from October 1980 to October 1983. It was created by members of the Price and Rini families. V.B. Price was the editor and a sometime cartoonist, Jim Rini was managing editor, artist, and cartoonist, Rini Price was art editor, artist, and cartoonist, and Jacki Rini Fuqua was photography editor and business manager. S. Jack Rini was the chief investor. In its three years, Century published the work of more than 400 New Mexico writers, scholars, poets, photographers, and artists, including Lucile Adler, Roland Dickey, Katherine Simons, Tony Hillerman, Allan Gerlach, George Clayton Pearl, Robert Kern, Richard Fox, Lee Bartlett, Frederick Turner, and Marc Simmons. Its subject matter covered everything from local and national politics and the environment to the arts and cultural issues, world politics, civil and human rights, and humor. It folded owing to the economic climate of the early 1980s in New Mexico.

"I have yet to see a piece of writing, political or non-political, that doesn't have a slant. All writing slants the way the writer leans, and no man is born perpendicular, though many men are born upright."
