The February issue of the local magazine that I edit came out yesterday with the pansies photograph on the cover. It's always good to see my thrifty finds earning their keep. I found the blue tureen years ago at a table top sale, and the fabric last summer at a car boot sale.
I have tried out all sorts of covers: buildings, local views, nature shots - and the ones people usually mention are the still life photos. As a free magazine, we need to find a way of keeping our copies on the kitchen table and out of the recycling bin. Making an attractive cover has to help the cause!
