With another year behind us, it’s time to appreciate all of the great publications created on Calaméo this year. To celebrate our users’ smart, shoppable, creative content, we’re showcasing some of the top covers of 2019.
Read on to find out which five covers were our favorites and what made these digital publications stand out.
It’s no secret that we here at Calaméo love travel and this beautiful cover offers an inviting, fairy-tale landscape. Dive in and World Heritage takes you on a globe-trotting journey from Estonia and Zimbabwe to Colombia and Pakistan. Even better, the digital flipbook makes the magazine available for readers everywhere to browse.
Could this cover be any more iconic? Thanks to the show’s continued popularity, Nostalgie Friends is instantly recognizable and sure to catch the eye of any Central Perk fan. Plus, enabling direct download means that Kathy Miller’s look at the Friends phenomenon will be there for readers even when wifi access isn’t.
Nothing says summer like barbecue, which is why we couldn’t resist the delicious cover of Fine Cooking’s June/July issue. Great photography, a dramatic dark background and fun headlines made this one of the best cooking covers of the year. By publishing a preview of the issue digitally, Fine Cooking can whet readers’ appetite to subscribe.
PARIS UN DEUX TROIS QUATRE
Since our own roots are in Paris, we loved seeing two faces of the “Made in France” movement on the cover of Paris Un Deux Trois Quatre. This magazine keeps things local, focusing on life in the city’s central neighborhoods. Also pretty smart? Including external links on advertisements so readers can learn more in just one click.
Going green has been a key trend in the 2010s and the cover of Void’s annual “Do Good” edition sums it up: a single, environmentally friendly metal straw against a sea of plastic ones. Though the issue shines a spotlight on lots of amazing ways to give back, the cover makes a bold—and memorable—statement about little changes that make a difference.
That’s it for our top covers of 2019! We can’t wait to see what inspiring publications Calaméo users will create this year. For more tips to creating a great publication, be sure to check out our Top Covers of 2018 and the tutorials in our Help Center.
