17 Oct 2005 Top Magazine Covers
Commissar at The Politburo Diktat is showcasing some of his favorite magazine covers of the last 40 years, and linking to a display the top 40 magazine covers as selected by the American Society of Magazine Editors.
Its clear when reviewing the ASME 40 that some were selected for their originality while others must have been chosen for political/cultural appeal.
Interestingly, the ASME list of 40 contains only 3 from the 1980s. A bad decade for creativity, or was the political karma not to ASME’s liking?
