The ASME have chosen the ten best magazine covers of 2015, and singled out The New Yorker as their Cover of the Year. The magazine’s ‘Broken Arch’ illustration, by Bob Staake, shows a split Gateway Arch and beat out every other cover in the country for the title.
Across other categories – the awards span everything from ‘Brainiest’ to ‘Most Delicious’ – the ASME recognized celebrity photography, food styling and photo manipulation. The New York Times Magazine showed Lena Dunham as an ancient Greek bust, while Bloomberg Businessweek created an overweight Coke bottle to play on the brand’s “fat problem.”
