Over the course of five years, W42ST has published 63 magazines (the 64th was halted in March because of COVID-19). Each cover celebrates the creativity of an individual artist – and more than once the ingenuity of the W42ST team – as well as the evolution of the magazine. Earlier this month, we brought you the first 20 – with Issue 1 available to buy as a poster, followed by issues 21-40 – with the Pride cover for sale. Here’s the final 23, from May 2018 to March 2020, including the one that was voted the best in our 50th issue reader vote. Which is your favorite – and do you have a full set?
