Flower Power
This cover from Cycle Canada  is not your typical Anniversary issue approach. Not at all serious or pretentious.  No big type treatments.  No special borders.  No benefit-oriented cover lines.  Just a groovy, retro, feel good cover and “try-me” discount pricing.

This risk-taking cover is praiseworthy, and I have a feeling it just might work, despite breaking all the traditional rules.  Sometimes what’s old is new again.  It’s a bold gamble.

Thanks to Peter Van De Geyn, at Coast to Coast, for bringing it to my attention.
