51 Unique Magazine Covers

Eccentric, Fashionable and Bizarre Photography

— September 14, 2009 — Fashion
For most print publications, the cover is usually the main selling feature, a combination of a captivating image and intriguing text. Having unique magazines covers is essential to sales as the cover often determines whether it will succeed or fail. This cluster of unique magazines covers includes creative ideas publications have used to help their issues stand out on newsstands.

Implications - Sure, the beauty of certain celebs is more than enough to grace the front covers of a magazine, but to really spice things up and add some dimension to the front, it's always good to get a little eccentric. From Gaga-inspired covers to floating lipstick, these concepts stray from the unconventional an delve into the abstract.
