In May, Andrew Losowsky and Jeremy Leslie announced the launch of a special, one-off publication celebrating magazine-makers’ favourite magazines, with the profits from the venture going to help US art director, Bob Newman, who was recently hospitalised. My Favo(u)rite Magazine is now available to buy…

The idea for the project was simple. Designers, creative directors and art directors from all over the world were asked to nominate their favourite magazine and explain why they felt it was a great example of the medium.

As Leslie informs us, creative directors from the likes of the New York Times Magazine, Fast Company, Pentagram, Wired, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Bloomberg Businessweek, The Observer, AOL and the NME have all chosen a title.

Included on this post are a few shots of the publication – readers will spot Design, Details, Avant Garde, Big, The Germans, Hard Werken and Harper’s Bazaar among the magazines selected.

The profits from the sale of the publication will go towards helping Bob Newman’s recovery. The former design director of titles including New York, The Village Voice, Details and Entertainment Weekly, Newman recently suffered an accident that left him in a coma for two weeks, and he now has a long path to recovery ahead. (The Friends of Bob Newman campaign has so far raised over £56k for his medical bills – more details on his condition are here.)

Billed as “a love letter to print” the 64-page My Favo(u)rite Magazine can now be bought from magculture.com/shop as a print publication (£15.99 plus P&P) or PDF (£12.99).

Leslie adds that “We also have a limited edition of ten that will be signed by Andrew and I and come with an original copy of one of the featured magazines – each of the ten comes with a different title – plus the PDF.” The limited edition numbers are £59.99 including P&P.

Pre-press (PHMedia) and print services (Newspaper Club) were provided free/at cost price.
