An accidental time capsule

Some boxes have remained unopened since we moved from Massachusetts in 2013…


The top cover features art from Red Nose Studio. He creates those little miniature scenes and then photographs them.

The second photo shows The Image Issue, for which Lew McCreary wrote cover lines in the style of Cosmopolitan. We did get at least 1 subscription cancellation but it was done to make a point. Also, something I learned from Lew is that the trade press shouldn’t—mustn’t—bore its readers. Every time I say “take intelligent risks” (and I say that a lot), that’s channeling Lew.

The third set, Bill Boni was on the cover of the first issue in 2002, and we re-shot him for our (newly redesigned) 10th anniversary issue in 2012. I believe Bill was the only person ever pictured twice on the cover of CSO magazine, which ended its print run in 2014.
