When selecting the 2011 best covers of the year, the Food Issue‘s “Corn Rocket” was a staff favorite. Turns out, we aren’t the only ones enamored by our cosmo-cob. The print version of the cover has been nominated for a “Cover of the Year” award on Amazon.com. Readers can vote until April 21, when voting will enter a second round. FP Creative Director Dennis Brack designed the cover, while Deputy Art Director Erin Chrisinger Aulov directed a shoot with photographer Renée Comet and food stylist Lisa Cherkasky. We think their collaboration became one of our most inspired images — if you agree, vote for us!
