Foam Magazine

How often do you open a magazine a literally drool over every page? The wonderful people at Foam sent over their latest issue and it is ridiculous! I gushed like a schoolgirl about their previous issue and this is more of the same. And by “same” I mean: 170+ pages, foldouts, photo inserts, glossy pages, matte pages, gorgeous layouts! The theme of this issue is Wonder and there’s this beautiful bleeding watercolor type treatment throughout. ahhhh.. Just get it, you’ll see what I mean!

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
