And the award for most beautiful photography publication goes to, Milan-based, 0-100 Editions. There are 100 copies of each edition, each filled with wonderfully curated images, printed on high quality paper (you could frame the prints, they’re that good). Cristiano graciously sent out all of the editions thus far. Bonus marks for all the Canadians in the latest edition! Thank you Cristiano!
I am a bit late posting this but I wanted to mention that my pick for best magazine cover in 2009 was Geoff McFetridge’s artwork for Huck Magazine and Little White Lies. I believe this is the first time something like this has been executed by two different magazines (I could be wrong).
