My review for Folio: of the latest Mother Jones cover, art directed by Ivylise Simones is now online. It’s a great parody of tabloid publication style, complete with big dot black and white photos of right-wing bogeymen the Koch Brothers.
Best of all, we talk about the renaissance of great design on the covers of progressive political magazines, and ask the question "why do left wing magazine covers look so much better than their conservative counterparts?" There’s a short look at the design of the National Review and The Weekly Standard covers, which look straight out of the 1980s. Given that both publications wax nostalgic for the days when Ronald Reagan was President, there’s certain logic to their resistance to enter the 21st Century in terms of cover design.
