Rob Ford Puching Bag Cover Sells

check_mark_125x125Back in May of 2014 I posted the May 12th 2014 issue of Maclean’s as Cover of the Week.  I said:

“This cover is just having so much fun, how can a newsstand junkie not give in to temptation?

For skybar lovers, Maclean’s can always be counted on for strong, easy to read skybar.

Nice use of the cover real estate.  Overall just a great magazine cover!”

So, how did it sell?  Only 3 of the 21 covers in the first half of 2014 outsold it.  It beat the average sale for the first half of 2014 by 22%.

Nice job!
