Art & Magazines

20 Sep

In an interview with Meg Mateo Ilasco, creative director for Anthology, she shared the reasons for the illustrated cover of the magazine’s yet-to-be released premiere issue (due out in October):

“As for the magazine cover, there’s definitely a throwback quality to it. There was a time when most magazine covers weren’t seducing you with catchy headlines or top 10 lists, rather they were pieces of art, something that could be framed. Vintage Harpers Bazaar and Vogue covers are so inspiring and a testament to how illustrations can be just as powerful and moving as photographs. It’s shame that we don’t see more illustrated magazine covers”

So true. I couldn’t agree more. I wish we saw a piece of art in place of catchy headlines more often like the New Yorker has done for decades. (New Yorker prints are available for purchase at the New Yorker store.)
