Magazines in battle for top cover crown
A royal tribute from Kate Moss and a politically minded Dalek will fight it out for the title of the greatest magazine cover of the last 100 years.
The first ever UK edition of Cosmopolitan from 1972 and Dennis the Menace on the front of The Beano are also among the contenders that will be put to a public vote.
Kate Moss’s Vogue cover from 2001, complete with a crown and sceptre, was billed as a royal salute ahead of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, while the 2005 Radio Times urged readers to Vote Dalek ahead of the 2005 general election.
The 10 images were chosen by a panel of industry experts to celebrate this year’s centenary of the Professional Publishers Association. PPA boss Barry McIlheney said:
