Front covers

Back to the future with US Esquire

Great to see this month’s US Esquire recall its heyday, bravely leading with this bold typographic sell for an exclusive piece of journalism. Congratulations to all involved (thanks Terri).

I just got my issue in the mail yesterday, and this is not the cover (I have Ashton Kutcher on the cover and the “The Man Who Killed…” type treatment is squished into the top. Would have much preferred this cover! Is this a special newsstand edition or something?

Another fake cover released online? Can anyone enlighten us?

Hi! This is the cover I got on the newsstand in New York last night. Not sure if they did a split cover run?

No, that is the newsstand version, I’ve seen it on sale.

I got the Ashton Kutcher cover in the mail too which disappointed me. It’s the usual celeb surrounded by type cover they’ve been doing for years now which I think is more than a bit played out.

Definitely the newsstand version in New York. Complete speculation here, but possibly a split for other parts of the country?

Maybe they reacted to the play the story got in the news and quickly re-badged it for NY newsstands (to maximise their cred?)
