Show Off Yo(u)r Copy of My Favo(u)rite Magazine

My Favo(u)rite Magazine is the benefit project for art director Robert Newman, organized by Jeremy Leslie and Andrew Losowsky. Following Bob’s serious accident in March, Jeremy and Andrew reached out to a stellar cast of magazine makers, including Florian Bachleda, Luke Hayman, Josh Klenert, Arem Duplessis, Rudy VanderLans, Richard Turley, Tom Brown, Tim Leong, Matt Willey, Mario Garcia, Andy Cowles, Dirk Barnett, Simon Esterson, Joe Zeff, and many more. The result was a collection of 88 art directors, editors, illustrators, and other visual publication creators, with covers and commentary on their favorite magazines. It’s a magazine lover’s delight, and all the proceeds go to help Bob defray medical bills and living expenses while he continues his recovery.

To promote the magazine, a series of Bob’s supporters have been taking snapshots of themselves holding My Favo(u)rite Magazine, in locations ranging from Barcelona to London to Los Angeles to the New York City subway. It has also popped up in a number of magazine offices, including Metropoli in Madrid and The New Yorker. We’ve collected 27 of our favorite snapshots here. Thanks to everyone who contributed photographs!
