I first started reading Harper’s Bazaar during the Liz Tilberis years and still remember many of the iconic covers from that time well (this is one of my favorites). After her untimely death, I kept my subscription going but it just didn’t have that same spark. In the last year though, I’ve noticed a shift back to what Bazaar does best: simple layouts, bold images and crisp type.
The covers have grown more graphic and feature less headlines; the type curves along the pages to accent accompanying photos. Even the table of contents is beautifully designed! I really, really love what Bazaar is doing these days.
Bazaar’s layout prove that there’s strength in simplicity.
