Shriglist, out tomorrow

In an unusual move for Stylist magazine, tomorrow’s edition of the women’s weekly title forgoes a famous face for a cover by David Shrigley

In an unusual move for Stylist magazine, tomorrow’s edition of the women’s weekly title forgoes a famous face for a cover by David Shrigley…

Being a fashion and style magazine, Stylist normally has glossy photography on its cover. But for its Books issue, Stylist’s photography director Tom Gormer asked Shrigley to come up with a cover.

He duly obliged, with a lovely serif masthead as well, and the result offers some insight into the transfiguring power of a good cover.

Rob Ryan and Quentin Blake have both previously created covers for Stylist, but it will be interesting see how Shrigley’s bright pink and yellow effort fares tomorrow.

Stylist is distributed for free every Wednesday in London, Brighton, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle, Leeds, Liverpool and Birmingham.
