20 Junior Covers to celebrate our anniversary

Can you believe Junior is 20?

Junior Covers 1998

Our first print edition of Junior magazine went on sale in March/April 1998 (cover  above – isn’t it still a beaut?) and even though our gorgeous magazine may no longer be around, the genuine love and affection for Junior still is. And this was never more evident than when we decided to celebrate our anniversary year in style… To mark the 20th year of Junior we asked 20 of our favourite children’s authors, illustrators, artists and designers to celebrate with us and design a special Junior Birthday Celebration Cover – and the answer from all was a resounding yes!
