Five more covers in the collection of 101 Kick-Ass Music Covers on the Adweek site. I collaborated with Adweek creative director Nick Mrozowski to compile a set of “the most awesome, iconic and controversial magazine images of the last 80 years.” If you’re a music fan, or a fan of magazine covers (or both) you’re going to love this collection.
