We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, picking page one is not something we take lightly. And Issue 15 was no different. It came down to the last second, printer on the way to pick up the files, sleepless for a couple days, just delirious enough to make a call and not question it.
We ask ourselves: What does it mean? Is the color too bright? How will it print? Does it mesh with our other covers? Will anyone actually buy this thing? How will it look on my coffee table? Does anyone even give a shit?
Probably not. But you know what? We do. And we love it. Here are a batch of covers that were push pinned to the wall that didn’t make the cut. It’s always fun to go back and take a look once the deadline dust has settled.
Can’t wait till the next one. —Scott Chenoweth
