by MediaSlut (@MediaSlut) My choice of the best international and local magazine covers in MagLove this week:

  • AwardsLine
  • Esquire
  • FT Weekend Magazine
  • ShortList
  • The New York Times Magazine
  • Woolworths TASTE

INTERNATIONAL

AwardsLine, 19 February 2014

AwardsLine, 19 February 2014

AwardsLine magazine has created a simple yet very effective cover, asking whether the Academy will finally recognise animated movies with a Best Picture win…

Esquire, March 2014

 Esquire, March 2014

So awesome to see actor Peter Dinklage on the cover of a prominent men’s magazine such as Esquire, and on its Style Issue to boot!

Also great layout and typography at play on this cover.

FT Weekend Magazine, 22 February 2014

 FT Weekend Magazine, 22 February 2014

FT Weekend Magazine has caught on to the trend of literally creating/making your cover out of a material, shooting it, and voila… you have your brilliant cover!

FT Weekend Magazine has opted for a material that I can’t recall seeing on a cover before: metal.

ShortList, 20 February 2014

 Shortlist, 20 February 2014

Once again, a cover made out of something, and this time it’s wood, as ShortList looks at “why men are ditching platpack hell and turning back to physical labour”.

The New York Times Magazine, 23 February 2014

The New York Times Magazine, 23 February 2014

Beautiful photography and image have been chosen for the cover of the latest New York Times Magazine, with the shadows and silhouettes creating the final touches.

LOCAL

Woolworths TASTE, March 2014

 Woolworths TASTE, March 2014

Known for its amazing ‘food’ covers, Woolworths TASTE has opted for something slightly different this time around with its March 2014 issue: a deliciously beautiful cover featuring an Affagato-masterpiece that anyone would want to savour for as long as possible.

The typography used on this cover is also noteworthy.
