A must for designers, art students, and every serious magazine collector, this pictorial history surveys 300 of the most important cover illustrations from American and European magazines of the 20th and 21st centuries. Selections include classics from Harper's Bazaar during the 1940s, France’s Elle in the 1960s, and from magazines covering sports, science and nature, fashion and entertainment, and hard news. While many are well-known, others have only rarely been seen, but each represents a noteworthy individual achievement in design. Enlightening commentary provides details of how and why each was created, offering a revealing reflection on the progression of pop culture.
