Lit Mag Covers :: Picks of the Week

boulevard
Boulevard consistently selects stunning cover art, and the most recent issue (#88) shows no letting up. Steven Kenny's "The Raft" is an oil on canvas, richly reproduced for the rich depth of contents within (like Bob Hicok, Sheila Kohler, Joyce Carol Oates, and Floyd Skloot).

iron-horse
This 2014 issue cover of Iron Horse is a stunner. "The Kelpies" is a photograph by Rafal Adamczyk. It's slightly cropped for the magazine cover, so seeing the original adds a greater appreciation for this gorgeous cover shot.


healing-museI love the concept of The Healing Muse, published by the Center for Bioethics and Humanities, SUNY Medical University. This journal should be required reading for ALL health care worker programs nationwide. The cover alone is testament to its contents, issue after issue: "Comforting a Friend" by Lynne Feldman. The Healing Muse - keeping the humanities in medicine.


hermanuetic-chaosMia Funk's oil on canvas "Labyrinth" draws readers into issue #4 of Hermeneutic Chaos Literary Journal. Funk says of her work: "I try to be provocative and playful and create a visually impacting work using oil on canvas, moving the paint like a dream/nightmare until I'm satisfied with the effect of the images coming through. I think people have a capacity now to accept strange and I hope some of my work holds up to that. I want to disorientate the viewer and make the unfamiliar familiar and vice versa."
