Aside from the current cover of Harper’s Bazaar being a little ironic with its happy-go-lucky doppelganger of Michael Jackson, there is another little quirk worth noting. It has to do with the magazine’s fixation with As. 
 
It’s not a big deal, but it does appear that in a word containing three As, various art directors, including the greats—Alexey Brodovitch and Henry Wolf—couldn’t leave A-enough alone.
