Cover Battle: Reader’s Digest or The New York Times Magazine

Welcome to the first FishbowlNY Cover Battle of 2014. Today we have Reader’s Digest versus The New York Times Magazine. We chose RD because well, we’re impressed with the new look. We hope it wins, because RD’s art team, led by design director Dean Abatemarcodid a wonderful job. However! We leave it up to you. By that we mean don’t mess this up.

As you can see, the cover of The New York Times Magazine is great as well. In fact, the photo is so good, it makes us want fish for dinner. If you would like to cook for the FishbowlNY editors, please shoot us an email. You must be willing to do the dishes too.

So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
