One of the first things people comment on when the first clap eyes on a copy of New Empress Magazine is the artwork on the front cover. It’s one of the key things that differentiates our publications from other publications already on the shelf. As editor of the magazine I am always toying with concepts for the front cover; New Empress covers are always a little bit playful as per the tone of the magazine but I’m really just the ideas person. The striking quality and beauty of the cover work is created by our very own ‘man behind the curtain’: cover artist Dan Havardi.
