Rolling Stone Magazine Covers pt2 "Iconic"

I hope everyone enjoyed Part 1 of this 3 post series about Rolling Stone Magazine covers. Moving on…

Now as I mentioned in the first part of this series, Rolling Stone magazine started in the 1970’s as a politically charged publication. When dealing with a topic such as politics, content can tend to be a little edgy and can push some limits. The magazine’s cover design was no different.

This image set explores some of the more controversial covers over the years. It was this sense of edge and riskiness that has led some of these covers to become iconic. You will also notice that the covers became much more sexually provocative as time went on.

So enjoy part 2 of the Rolling Stone Magazine series, and coming tomorrow is the final post in the series, Best Cover Designs.
