Now THIS is a magazine cover!
Anyone who knows me knows I love my magazines. My "Vogue" collection is infamous (and taking up vast amounts of precious storage space in our garage, much to my hubbie's chagrin). But I find magazines interesting and inspirational and many worth keeping. I have always lamented the loss of the artistic cover though. In fact, I am sure I have mentioned it on this blog before. The beautiful covers of yesteryear, a wealth of creative photography, colour and composition with minimal text have been replaced with generic celebrity portraits on white backgrounds with masses of text. They rarely inspire me to pick up the issue. I recently decided to subscribe to the UK edition of "Harper's Bazaar" and was delighted when the April edition landed on my doormat yesterday. This is more like it! If only all magazines would have beautiful covers like this. This is a subscriber's edition cover so not available off the shelf, but at least it is a start. Rachel
