Forty Most Controversial Magazine Covers from Recent Years

18 Mar

If you love all things visual, as I do, and if you admire the power of images to convey a face-slappingly stark message, you will enjoy browsing this page of magazine cover eye candy from http://coverjunkie.com:

I found these while researching a new post on the premanufactured “personality cult” of Barack Obama, which you can find here.

Enjoy.
