MagLove: Yo-landi Visser DAZED
MediaSlut (@MediaSlut)’s choice of the best international magazine covers this week:
- The New York Times Magazine
- The New Yorker
The New York Times Magazine, 22 February 2015
It launched the redesign with its “Global Issue”, which has a four-way-split cover. The story behind the redesign, and the process, is really interesting!
DAZED, Spring 2015
DAZED offers a feature on this ‘anarchist superstar’ as she’s about to appear in her first major movie role in Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie! Very cool!
You can read more about Yo-landi and this issue, and watch the ‘trailer’ for the movie, right here.
WIRED, March 2015
I’m sure this issue will tickles many peoples fancy, so I’ve also included some of the articles from this NSFW-issue below. For your reading ‘pleasure’, of course:
- Your dick pics are about to be all over the Internet
- Virtual-Reality porn is coming, and your fantasies may never be the same
- Young, attractive, and totally not into having sex
The New Yorker, 23 February 2015
And, in celebration of this MASSIVE milestone, it “picked nine covers for our ninety years, selecting images that reflect the talent and diversity of our contributors and the range of artistic media they use”.
And what makes it more amazing is that the nine covers are all inspired by their first! Read all about it, and view its first cover, right here.
MagLove by @MediaSlut is a regular slot featuring the best local and international magazine covers every week, recognising well thought-out, powerful and interesting (and hopefully all three-in-one) covers and celebrating the mix of pragmatism, creativity and personal taste that created each of them. The (for now anonymous) blogger behind MediaSlut knows way too much for his own good about media in South Africa, magazines in particular. His mission is to show when SA magazines fail but, most importantly, also when they succeed. If you’re looking for a library about SA magazines and news, this is your one-stop pitstop.
