Magazines. They have the power to spawn not just a fan following but an addiction that can span a lifetime. In some cases, the love for a magazine lasts beyond a generation. Titles like National Geographic, TIME, Readers Digest, Rolling Stone, New Yorker come to mind when we speak of magazines with great fan following. While content is what attracts a reader to a magazine, the first impact is always created by the magazine cover. No wonder that a lot of thought and effort goes into choosing the right cover story, the design and the presentation. The magazine cover is an invitation to buy the magazine and telegraphically conveys what the lead story is all about. And in doing it with wit, sophistication and beautiful design it rewards the reader on his taste and choice. So whether it is the printed version or a digital magazine, the magazine cover is a great opportunity to bond with your reader.
Here are 15 recent examples of magazine covers that are a great blend of design, typography, photography and more. Source: Picsean
