The glossy weekly named TIME…

May 5, 2008

In a continuation of transforming the magazine to a weekly of the 21st century (a monthly glossy on a weekly basis), TIME magazine sports five different covers this week to celebrate the fifth anniversary of its The TIME 100 Most Influential People in the World. The magazine asked “several top graphic designers to create bonus covers to mark the fifth anniversary of this issue.” The designers include Chip Kidd, Neville Brody, James Victore and Michael Lee. And if you think the covers are great, think twice about the writing and photography. To quote Richard Stengel, TIME’s managing editor “What does it take to produce 100 profiles by 100 writers, plus great photography and five different covers? A whole world of talent.” Yes, indeed.

  1. Did all these end up on the newsstand? I thought only the first one did (hence it’s the only one with a bar code). Time’s website, when you click on ‘the magazine’ suggests the same.

    The remaining four covers are inside the front cover…so you are right. By doing so TIME’s readers do not have to pay $4.95 five times to have all the covers…
