Cover art by artists

I watched The September Issue on the telly the other day.

Great film. Can't believe I hadn't seen it before.

What disappointed me about the Vogue magazine in the film was the cover.

Not exactly a Vogue classic if you ask me. Unlike the one above by Salvador Dali.

Given the importance of the cover in getting you to buy the mag I'm surprised more mags don't commission artists and well known image makers to do their covers.

Here are some great examples:

Time Out by Banksy

Pop by Damien Hirst

NY Times Style mag by Jeff Koons
