MagLove: Here’s looking at you, Katy
MediaSlut (@MediaSlut)’s choice of the best international and South African magazine covers this week:
- The New York Times Magazine
- The European
- British Airways High Life (South Africa)
- JSE+ Supplement
The New York Times Magazine, 3 and 16 May 2015
Avaunt (Launch Issue), Spring/Summer 2015
The European (Germany)
When translated, the cover reads “Give the Coke for Free — Germany needs a new drug policy”. Now, I’m not sure what the reasons behind this cover story are, and its true meaning, but I can appreciate the brilliance of the magazine’s logo cutting the Coke cover lines.
Wonderland, Summer 2015
British Airways High Life (South Africa, May 2015)
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.
