Magazine Covers--a Lost art?

"Take a look at your local newsstand and here's what you'll see: racks upon racks of magazines that look almost identical. Whether they focus on music, fashion, cigars, fitness, women, or men, most magazines typically feature a grinning celebrity on the cover peeking out from behind squadrons of coverlines. It wasn't always like this."

You've probably forgotten that magazine covers used to be art. Follow the clicks and links at this site. Lots of interesting cover art at this site. Many historical articles about magazines at the Journal of Magazine and New Media Research, Ball State University.
