Look for this cover to sell well.

The March 2016 issue of Horse Sport hits newsstands on February 22, 2016.

The cover feature:  Ultimate Guide to choosing a Boarding Stable is precisely the kind of service journalism, with real benefits, that readers have come to expect from this title.

Art Director Bonnie Summerfeldt chose a warm purple and yellow colour scheme.  Good use of left-hand side real estate and alternating of yellow and white help drive the eye down the page.

For Dummies
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For Dummies is an extensive series of instructional/reference books which are intended to present non-intimidating guides for readers new to the various topics covered. The series has been a worldwide success with editions in numerous languages.

The books are an example of a media franchise, consistently sporting a distinctive cover—usually yellow and black with a triangular-headed cartoon figure known as the “Dummies Man”, and an informal, blackboard-style logo. Prose is simple and direct; bold icons, such as a piece of string tied around an index finger, are placed in the margin to indicate particularly important passages.
