Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. Today we have GQ taking on Interview. GQ’s latest cover features Katy Perry and her amazing personality.
Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s Cover Battle, a weekly fight between two of our favorite recent magazine covers. This round features Rolling Stone versus Time. For its latest issue, RS went with Lorde, who is doing her best “Winona Ryder in Beetlejuice” impression. Not bad.
Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round we have Outside taking on Vogue. For its February cover, Outside featured Julia Mancuso, an Olympic alpine ski racer. Take a look at that amazing suit. If Mancuso doesn’t wear that thing everywhere — like to the grocery store, walking a dog, everywhere — she’s making a big mistake.
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 Abatemarco, did a wonderful job. However! We leave it up to you. By that we mean don’t mess this up.
Congratulations are in order for the staffers at Bloomberg Businessweek. The magazine’s Henry Luce/Twitter bird cover has won FishbowlNY’s 2013 Cover of The Year poll. Businessweek won fairly easily, receiving 43 percent of the votes. Boston magazine’s impressive dedication to the Boson Marathon bombing victims was the runner-up, with 23 percent. The Atlantic — last year’s winner — finished third.
It’s not much of a surprise that Businessweek won. The magazine’s creative team, led by Richard Turley, continually cranks out remarkable work. The winning cover, illustrated by David Parkins, is truly worth honoring.
Thanks to everyone who voted and once again, congrats to Businessweek. Your prize is in the mail. Maybe.
You had to know you wouldn’t be escaping 2013 without one final award. As you know from FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle, we’re big fans of magazine covers. Below are some of our favorites from the past year.
We know you’re doing the least amount of work possible before the holiday break (no, ordering a DVD of Saved by the Bell: Hawaiian Style doesn’t count as work). Why not take a minute to vote for your favorite? Just in case you were wondering, The Atlantic won last year’s contest.
The Cover of The Year winner will be announced next Monday, December 30.
Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round pits Details against Billboard.
For its December issue, Details went with Christian Bale, perhaps the best actor in Hollywood. We’re not entirely sure what he’s doing in this photograph, but it wouldn’t be a stretch to guess that he’s debating lopping off a limb for his next role. We say go for it. The Academy will love it!
Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This week we have Seventeen taking on Fortune. Seventeen went with a group photo of One Direction, the boy band completely dedicated to the trapped-in-a-wind-tunnel haircut.
Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly cover battle. Today we have W versus Town & Country. For its art issue, W went with non-artist George Clooney. However, according to seven year old girls across the nation, polka dots are artsy, so we’re fine with it.
