It seems that 2016 is turning out to be a bad year for a lot of music celebrity icons.

But my guess is that this is going to help increase the sales for RollingStone magazine.

The February 11th, 2016 issue is a tribute cover to David Bowie.  The May 5, 2016 issue is a tribute to Merle Haggard. And the May 16, 2016 issue is for Prince.

Beautiful covers.

The Summer 2016 issue of Dirt Trax is scheduled to hit newsstands on June 27, 2016.

Art Director Andrew Knor has created the first cover in Dirt Trax’s history that features a dark blue background, as opposed to the usual outdoor backgrounds that come with shots from the field.

The colored background method is a technique that Cosmopolitan made an iconic part of the their brand.  Recently I posted an example of Modern Dog using this technique, which appears to have worked well for them too.

The spring 2016 issue (Vol 17 #3) of Dirt Trax is scheduled to go on sale April 25.

Art Director Andrew Knor was able to pack in four vehicles and still keep the overall effect clean and uncluttered.

The cover price was raised to $5.99 from $4.99 or 20% last year, resulting in a revenue gain of 24%.

The March 2016 issue of Vogue features the singing sensation Adele on the cover.  Smart of Vogue to use this musical star as their cover girl.  She looks great…and very approachable.

Amazing eyes, lips, and hair.

Look for this cover to sell well.

This issue of Vogue has 405 ad pages, the most ad pages of any of the top Fashion magazines for the important Spring season.
