Why Magazines Still Matter: It's The Cover Story, Stupid

This week’s case in point: The Advocate’s “Person of the Year” cover story, which combines a powerful image of Russian President and notorious homophobe Vladimir Putin with an equally powerful typographic treatment to produce a sublimely powerful statement. The “Person of the Year” type is creatively rendered over Putin’s upper lip to evoke the image of a Hitler-like moustache. Nuff said.

The magazine's December/January issue is on newsstands now.

    It is a brilliant cover that speaks volumes with very few words. The fact that its issue date reads December/January, indicating the once bi-weekly pub is now only published six times a year, speaks a little louder to me, unfortunately.
