Reviews

A history of the world in the last century as described by the front covers of international magazines. Covers are designed to sell magazines, so at any given moment, in any given week or month, the view of the world from the newsagents' racks will tell you much about contemporary obsessions. And as the images on the racks change, as one month's issues replace the last, you can observe changes not just in fashion and media, but in current events and the magazine industry's understanding of its customer base. A fascinating historical document recording the changing self-image of the world in the media mirror from the Russian revolution to the age of global terrorism. Will appeal beyond the specialist market of students of commercial design to anyone who measures the passage of time with issue dates.
