Interview Magazine is memorialized by decades worth of covers featuring the who’s who of pop culture
With an abrupt yet long-rumored demise, Brant Publishers announced early this week that the legendary tome started by Andy Warhol, Interview Magazine, was folding. Since its launch in 1969, the magazine has been known for its iconic covers and recent rebranding under the eye of Fabien Baron and Karl Templer. Plagued with financial woes the “crystal ball of pop” has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and print and digital operations are ending effective immediately. Here we look back at some of it’s most memorable covers from the past above as well as industry reactions on Instragram.

Interview Magazine was my first job in NYC – I will never forget the insane library, casual Warhol’s on the wall, and Ingrid stomping in every morning in her ankle cut cowboy boots. It was Bruce and Ellen’s prints stacked high and John Bon Jovi in the waiting room. Thanks for the memories Interview!!! Goodbye for now ?
