    Dear Fans,

    I’ve been looking at archives and found a quite extensive one of Harvard Design Magazine. Their use of photography as cover art is pretty amazing. I’m pretty sure this one [attached] is by Martin Paar, but can’t seem to locate it in my cranial archive.

    Here’s link to back issues

    Cheers, Peggy
