Weekly Dig/Dig Boston Altweekly Covers

Weekly Dig/Dig Boston Altweekly Covers One of my favorite altweekly newspapers is Dig Boston, formerly called (until last year) the Weekly Dig. Creative director Tak Toyoshima's covers are a weekly visual treat using a brilliant selection of illustrators and photographers, and sometimes handling the art chores himself. Dig Boston/Weekly Dig covers are artful, smart, provocative, and funny (and sometimes very funky). Here's a collection of 12 of the best, all designed by Toyoshima, dating from 2007-2012.
