So I had some time this morning to read this issue, and I was mostly interested in the beauty supplement - but two pages in, the art direction was that bad, I cast it to the side in disgust, and I've never done that with any other magazine, and I've been buying these bloody things since 1990. Some of the text was UNREADABLE. How much are these people getting paid to pass themselves off as the best in their respective industry? Once I got beyond the opening pages, the art design settled down, but it's not good. I could make the excuse that this is a supplement where other forces have had a say in the presentation - but I also know that Edward's covers in general show weak art direction, so I don't absolve him of all blame in the matter. I attach a scan below, and I can hear you now, telling me that it looks clean and elegant - but all I can see is pseudo-design where you can't make out the quote and it's just a senseless stream of serif capitals saying nothing discernable whatsoever. It actually look way better below than it does in print, it looks awful (to me) in my hand.
