The Anatomy of a Magazine Cover

The best design podcast around—and one of the best podcasts, period—is Roman Mars’ 99% Invisible.

Here at The Eye, we cross-post his new episodes and host excerpts from the 99% Invisible blog, which offers complementary visuals for each episode.

This week’s edition—in which 99% Invisible producer Avery Trufelman spoke with design legend George Lois, Esquire design director David Curcurito, andcoverthink.com blogger and former Rolling Stone art director Andy Cowles—can be played below. Or keep reading to learn more.
