Bob Newman is one of the most respected and best-loved editorial art directors in the world. The quality of his design work (New York, Village Voice, Details, Real Simple, Entertainment Weekly, Readers Digest) is matched by his passion for magazines and his mentoring of New York’s editorial designers. Many owe their start in the industry to Bob.

Earlier this year, Bob had a serious accident that left him in a coma. He's slowly recovering, while his family struggles to pay the resultant medical bills. In support of Bob and his family, Andrew Losowsky and Jeremy Leslie have put together a unique publication about the power of print.

They invited magazine makers around the world to submit words and images about their favourite magazine. It could be a single issue of any magazine in history – the only rule was that nobody could nominate their own work. They received 88 submissions, from some of the biggest names working in magazines today.

The chosen publications span vintage, modern, famous and obscure titles, with personal texts that reveal how magazines inform and inspire people of all ages.

See the selections of Richard Turley (Bloomberg Businessweek) and Marissa Bourke (Harper's Bazaar), Rudy VanderLans (Emigré) and Matt Willey (Port). Who chose Issue 1 of Colors? The Face from October 1998? Avant Garde issue 5? Which, according to this very unscientific survey, is the most popular magazine of all time?

All these questions and more are answered in this newsprint publication that reveals so much about how today's magazine makers view their industry and their history.

All proceeds go to Bob Newman's donation fund.
