Magazine covers are a common topic on The Sidebar Review. Luke Hayman of design firm Pentagram told AdWeek what he thought the best covers of last year were at this link. He chose the following:

I thought the Spin cover (May 2010), pictured, was the most clever of the ones he mentioned. Because, just think about it: You’re standing at the newsstand looking at the cover, knowing that you want to tear it, but you can’t unless you own it! (Surely, torn ones were on each magazine stand that carried it, but where’s the pleasure if you don’t get to do it yourself?)

What are your favorites? Why?
