ASME Top 40 Magazine Covers

The American Society of Magazine Editors has announced their Top 40 Magazine Covers of the Last 40 Years. (Update: Link fixed. Cover images here. Note to ASME -- Don't underestimate the Blogosphere when you allocate bandwidth for stuff like this. We love pop culture and we love lists of things. End of update.) Here's what The Gothamist has to say, and here's the NYT article.

I think it'd be cool to do a mash-up of some of these covers with each other -- Princess Diana's B/W portrait (#36) on the cover of Time w/the Ellen caption (#37); The blue-eyed Afghan girl (#10) pregnant, naked, and on the cover of Vanity Fair (#2); The comely (but chilly) Dixie Chicks (#27) with phrases such as "Is God Dead?" (#12) "To the Moon and Back"(#13) "If You Don't Buy This Magazine, We Kill This Dog" (#7) and "The Trouble With Mergers" (#16) magic-markered on them; and of course, Al Gore and G.W. Bush (#31) in an intimate embrace (#1) with the caption "The Next American Revolution" (#22).
