For many years the Radio Times was rightly lauded for its cover art. I’m thinking in particular of the work of Victor Reinganum, Eric Fraser, Peter Brooks and Mick Brownfield. These, and many more, are celebrated at the Museum of London’s exhibition for Radio Times at 90 running until 3 November 2013.
These days its mainly photographic covers, commissioned artwork only make an appearance at Christmastime. One of my own favourites, for the Easter issue, is this self-referential 1980 cover from Chuck Jones.
