The book is structured thematically, with each chapter covering a specific genre of magazine, including Art and Design, photojournalism, popular culture, and fashion. It includes classic UK and US magazines such as "Picture Post", "Life", "New Yorker", "Nova", "Interview", "The Face", and "Wallpaper". The author looks at the 'heydays' of world-famous magazines: "Harper's Bazaar" in the 1940s, "French Elle" in the 1960s, "British Nova" in the 1960s, and Andy Warhol's "Interview of the 1970s". It is an accessibly written and thorough survey that considers the methodology, motivations, and aims of the art directors and designers behind the best magazine covers.
