Our Age of Choice is underlined by the new issue of The Architect’s Journal. To coincide with the Royal Institute of British Architects awards a cover was created for each of the 89 award-winning projects.
Editor Christine Murray explains, “It would have been easier to simply design the covers and post them online, but despite all the rhetoric about the death of print, there is still something very special about the printed page – much like how there is something special about drawings on paper, that isn’t quite there on screen.”
Wallpaper magazine have been leading the way in developing customised covers where subscribers can make their own, but we like the idea of an extravagant amount of different cover images to choose from. As print technology develops, in the future perhaps 89 covers will seem miserly.
