I love the latest cover of POP magazine - the 20th anniversary issue, in fact - with coverstar Drew Barrymore (and co-coverstar a lil white bunny) it's a little nod to grunge and perhaps Alice in Wonderland? (leave it to me to read into anything and say it's "alice in wonderland" influenced - but come one, who doesn't love alice?)
I was sad to learn that POP magazine is going on a "hiatus" (whatever that means) from now until 2009 and that editor, Katie Grand and basically all of her staff have left the publlication.
While I don't buy POP that often (I read bits of it online instead) I am, more often then not, quite satiated by the modernist layout and funky editorials. According to their publisher, POP will return - but will it be the same? not very likely.
Katie Grand and co. will be launching a new magazine in Spring of 09 which is reportedly title LOVE. I can only hope that LOVE will fill the void if POP is, in fact, dead in the water.
