Biz mags among top 10 covers for 2006
Advertising Age’s Nat Ives picked a cover from the Economist and a cover from Wired as two of his top 10 magazine covers for the year.
Here they are:
No. 2 was The Economist. “It may have been the last time anyone laughed when they saw Kim Jong-il, but The Economist gets props for a great joke about a terrible situation-North Korean missile tests. The American Society of Magazine Editors gave it third place in its cover-of-the-year competition.”
No. 4 was Wired. “Midway through what would turn out to be the Year of Colbert, Stephen Colbert took a hacksaw to an iPod to illustrate the ‘How To’ cover feature, which included ‘Be an Expert at Everything!’ (by Stephen Colbert) and “How to Hack Your iPod.” It looks so fun we still want to try it.”
