MediaSlut (@MediaSlut)’s choice of the best international magazine covers this week:
- Zeit Magazin
I didn’t know this but, according to its website, it’s a “not-for-profit organisation” and its magazine “is entirely ad-free”! Ah, now Adbusters makes sense ;-). View all the issues here.

Foodism is almost like our local Eat Out, but it publishes 110 000 copies which are then distributed free of charge in London.

Such a great sales cover for the rich and famous who can afford island holidays like these! I mean, after seeing this image and the little teasers, who wouldn’t want to be there, there and also THERE?!
Zeit Magazin, 25 June 2015
The first cover (with the generic bird and egg) reads: “My father wanted to never have anything to do with me”. And then on the second cover (with what now appears to be the Twitter bird…) reads “Then he suddently started following me on Twitter — A daughter tells the story of her life”.
Definitely going to keep my eye on these double covers!
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.
