The new edition of Mojo Magazine (out later this week) will be celebrating the magazine’s 20th year of publication. To mark it, they asked Kate to design the hand-drawn cover! The Independent newspaper writes: “There’s probably only one media brand in the world that could get the famously private Kate Bush to fetch down her sketching equipment and produce a hand-drawn illustration in its honour. And that’s Mojo.” Note: the cardboard wallet pictured here will contain the actual magazine, which will feature Kate’s cover.
The issue will also include a free CD plus interviews with Jimmy Page, John Lydon, Ringo Starr, Alex Turner, Brian Wilson, Jeff Beck, Debbie Harry, Paul Weller, Prince Buster, Ray Davies, Martha Reeves, Yoko Ono, Cliff Richard, Steven Tyler, Danger Mouse, David Crosby, Pete Seeger, Buddy Guy, Bobby Womack and John Cale. Also featured will be the ’20 Most Important Albums of Mojo’s Lifetime’ as voted by the readers. Read more about the magazine at the Mojo site here.
Subscribers to the magazine will additionally get an extra special version of this Kate-designed cover, “adorned with gold foil block.” Sure to be a collector’s item! Kate has apparently signed her cover art with the following dedication:
“Glad to see you’ve still got your Mojo after 20 years”
