It's only a fun survey, and of course Amazon's doing it to try to feed into its magazine subscription service. I don't care about that; it's just fun to look at good magazine designs. In almost all of the categories, I thought all of the nominees were quite good and a strong case could be made for selecting almost any cover. But the ones I chose were picked because I thought they were well composed, would jump off the newsstand, were provocative without being offensive, and showed creativity.
What are your choices? The survey is here (you'll need to log in to your Amazon account to vote).
