City Pages covers featured by Society of Publication Designers
City Pages is proud to announce that the Society of Publication Designers has named Kevin Cannon's illustration for our Aug. 11 comics issue to its The Top 10 Alternative Newsweekly Covers for 2010.
SPD also picked Melinda Beck's July 14 cover illustration on Twin Cities Thinkers to its runners-up list for 2010. We appreciate the recognition.
It isn't the first time the SPD has taken notice of the fine art we publish on our covers each week. Back in November 2009, the organization linked to our cover mash-up of Michele Bachmann as Sarah Palin, praising the work for having broken new ground.
Here are the 2010 SPD covers.
