Warning: This post was published more than 5 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 5 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
I know journal editors have a strong proclivity for austere covers, but it is a little dull. This journal generally sits around the house for a week or so before I get round to opening it, so uninviting is its cover. I’ve made this photo monochrome since I gave up trying to accurately capture the bright orange cover colour.
I think a medical journal with a cover styled like Monocle would be fab: it would be a lovely combination of austerity, uniformity, but also inviting imagery… Though I guess the additional colours in the printing process might push costs up.
