40 best magazine covers

On this topic:

Good morning everyone! As the American Association of Magazine Publishers assures us, the 1980s were the worst times for magazine magazine advertising design. Recently, this society conducted a large survey, trying to figure out the “golden age” of magazine covers. As it turned out, the sixties of the last century were the heyday of the best magazine covers. In the ranking of the best covers of the planet, 11 works of that period were hit at once. I suggest to get acquainted with them and other best magazine covers for the last forty years.
