Coverjunkie George Lois
My highlight 2012 was meeting cover legend George Lois in his New York apartment.
Coverjunkie asked George about the favorite covers that are so good he wished he designed them himself:
- Vanity Fair out of 1991.
- The New Yorker out of 1976.
- Harpers Bazaar out of 1958.
- National Lampoon out of 1973.
- All recent covers Bloomberg Businessweek designed by Richard Turley.
For (the few) people out there don't know him, he designed classics for esquire in the 60's that are also shown in the MoMA New York;
He stripped the cover down to a graphically concise yet conceptually potent image. He was probably the most provocative in the history of the magazine industry...
