The Year In Covers

Saturday, December 30, 2017

They say don’t judge a book by its cover, but a magazine? No problem. Over the past year, AVENUE has pushed the boundaries of graphic design, with covers ranging from edgy to kooky.


 


January

We took dozens of photos of Kara Ross at her Palm Beach home, but this one captured the jewelry designer’s playful style best.



 


February

With this cover, we wanted to highlight how New York’s immigrants grow to love their city—show here through Amal Clooney’s firm embrace of the Manhattan skyline.



 


March

A beautiful picture of the very beautiful Julia Restoin Roitfeld. How could we resist?



 


April/May

This shirt was a fun, cheeky way to capture the altruistic spirit of humanitarians like Petra Nemcova.



 


June

Ann and Mick Jones split ten years ago, but remained in close contact. With this cover, we tried to capture the way that loved ones never really leave your life—they’re always just a phone call away.



 


July

For our Studio 54-focused cover story, we dreamed up this Andy Warhol-esque cover illustration.



 


August/September

One foot on land, one foot in the water—a fitting metaphor for the bipartisan-minded Patricia Duff.



 


October

Does Caroline Kennedy have political aspirations—or dynastic ones? That was the question that Sharon Churcher tried to answer, and which our cover gleefully lampooned.



 


November/December

David Rockwell is a man who prefers the darkness—and we deferred to his always excellent taste.
