It’s that time of year again, as made made famous by Vogue’s movie ‘The September Issue’. Sadly their cover this year is rubbish, with the rest of the market not much better.
But the clear winner is this brilliant Harpers’ cover. Aside from the access and technical perfection, it borrows heavily from sixties’ title Nova, which is no bad thing in my book. And the photographer? None other than Karl Lagerfeld. Bet he had a really good assistant.
And for real devotees, here’s a great story on the weight, spine thickness and pagination of all the September glossies. Ka-boom!
