Magazines go mad at Christmas

Christmas covers dug out of James Hyman's archive

Just four of the Christmas covers dug out of James Hyman’s archive

The people over at Radio Times were really helpful digging out scans of the magazine’s covers when I was writing my magazine design book. I discovered in my researches that the best-selling magazine yet was the Christmas 1988 cover of the Radio Times – it shifted 11 million copies!

There are no Radio Times covers in this list of Christmas magazine covers past, but James Hyman dug out some great fronts from his archive for the piece by Anna Doble, BBC Newsbeat‘s online editor. It just shows how magazines go mad at Christmas.
