[This post has been updated]The cover at left is one of the finalists in the lifestyle category in the ASME/Amazon Best Cover contest (see previous post). The one on the right is a recent issue of Le Figaro magazine sent to me by a friend and frequent reader of this blog. Noted that the book is in English and the barcode has been removed.
[UPDATE  If this is a case of stockphoto-itis, it is worth looking at a post from a year ago by freelance visual artist and instructor Charles Apple about the use of stock photos on the covers of the most mainstream magazines. In the case of the image on the TIME magazine cover shown, the photographer says he got $30.]
