War of 1812

Posted by Scott On January - 2 - 2012

Legion Magazine’s Jan/Feb 2012 issue hits newsstands today.  The cover story is:  The War of 1812…The War that Saved Canada.

The cover is multi-layered…Flags, type treatment, illustration.

The cover also employs classic circulation building devices, such as:

  • Win a Trip in the skybar area
  • Free Poster in a starburst

The issue even features a fold-out Readership Survey.  The black border adds drama to this compelling cover feature.
