This is a pretty old issue of Paper (a great name too), and although not a great fan of la lohan, one of my favourite magazine covers! Of course it has a lot to do with the handwritten font, something I adore but have yet to really work into in the mock-up layouts I have already done, surprisingly. And if we are to analyse why I like this cover even further I think the neutral tones against the white text has a lot to do with it. It's not something you see often I believe. Also the combination of, is it 7 different font types!? (ok, sounding slightly geeky, when simply I should just say LOVE IT.) But that many font types means a very experienced, confident and talented person created this. And it shows.
(very quickly, this was suppose to be short) And the red lips just make it pop!
