45 years of covering the issues -- This Magazine celebrates anniversary

First issue
45th anniversary issue
It's interesting to see the evolution of a magazine, both in focus and design, over a period of years. This is particularly so for This Magazine, which is celebrating 45 years of progressive publishing. Its 45th anniversary issue which is on newsstands now features 45 profiles by alumni of the magazine, each writing about individuals or organizations they consider are doing the most exciting, creative, and important work in politics, activism, art, and so on.
The magazine has posted scanned images of every cover going back to April 1966 when the publication started as This Magazine Is About Schools.

That's a fun cover for the anniversary issue. It has a bit of a seventies vibe, which, given the anniversary, is entirely appropriate.

Always great to see illustrated type on a cover. Hyein Lee knocked that out of the park.
