The Best Magazine Covers of the Year

Many magazines don’t seem to be suffering from the competitive shockwaves that have left the newspaper industry in critical condition. Other than “newsmagazines” – which increasingly seems a contradiction of terms – many are thriving.

How? One reason: If they can’t compete on speed, they’re competing on creativity. And doing it well.

Here’s some evidence. Time has named the top 10 magazine covers of the year. And the creativity is amazing. One of them – The New Yorker cover, below – was even developed on an iPhone app, called Brushes.

Personally, I was pleased that half the winners came from my three favorite magazines – The New Yorker, New York and Texas Monthly. (Does that indicate a certain amount of schizophrenia?)

Check out all 10, here.
