James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Where are the limits?

I am sure you saw the Time cover in the US last week.

The question that this leaves us asking is whether or not this is going too far to sell magazines or is this a legitimate way to bring the topic to our attention?

And is the topic about breastfeeding?

Hmmm… I personally was a bit surprised that Time Magazine would sink to the low road to sell its product.

I mean really, where have the standards gone?

Or are we talking about the role of the image? In a society that has lost its appetite for the word do we need to have an image to lead us to the text?

I had a fantastic conversation with Narain Jashanmal of Jashanmal Books on Nightline about the issue of cover art and more.
