Cover Shot: Magazine covers we love (this week)

Date posted: September 30, 2011

?> is introducing a new regular slot onto the site dedicated to featuring the best local and international magazine covers every week. We recognise well thought out, powerful and interesting (and hopefully all three in one) magazine covers and celebrate the mix of pragmatism, creativity and personal taste that created each of them.

“I take my hat off to magazines who go the extra mile with covers, and who think longer than a few minutes about a cover-concept,” says magazine blogger MediaSlutZA, who will be curating the section. “If the end product conveys the theme for the issue just by looking at it once, it has won me over and the Art Director needs to get a pat on the back.”

– The (for now anonymous) blogger behind MediaSlutZA knows way too much for his own good about media in South Africa. Magazines in particular. His mission is to show when South African magazines might fail, but most importantly, succeed. If you’re looking for a library about South African magazines and news, your one-stop pitstop is MediaSlutZA. #MagazinesForTheWin
