Magazine covers

Do you think a magazine cover such as these would sell well today? No 'celebrity' Kardashians or overly air-brushed photographs of interiors; rather a well rendered image by an artist on a topic covered in the issue.
Imagine a special issue of Architectural Digest or Elle Decor on which Jeremiah Goodman produced the cover. Am I crazy or would this be a wonderful thing and have the design world abuzz? I'm not talking inside the magazine, just the cover; don't take away my pretty photographs!  If magazines are always looking for something new, isn't doing something this 'old' the latest thing?
Another 'old' thing I would love to see in a design magazine spread; Detailed floorplans (oh how a boy can dream.......). Everyone loves a floorplan! Yes or no, am I crazy (I realize thats a whole other question!)?

I would go nuts if AD or Elle Decor put a Jeremiah Goodman on the cover. Its a terrific idea!

what?! in order to push advertising, it must be so-did you read recently that AW said Vogue could not always be tasteful? it had to sometimes shock, and must be talked about,re her Kim-Kanye cover. Nothing will change. We are all dreamers- the best kind-that is why we must keep our blogs alive and well. Stefan, you offer wonderful content, and always original. thank you for that. pgt

I like the top cover, which is classic and inspirational. Imagine getting someone like Michael Hampton to do some architectural watercolours for a cover?
