i-D magazine was established in 1980 by Terry Jones. A lot of the older covers are so exciting; there are more, as well as interview with Jones, at Hint.

I forgot that their thing is to make the models "wink", which comes from the fact that the logo is like a laughing and winking smiley face if you turn it on its side. Early issues had i-D positioned like that (the magazine cover itself was oriented sideways). It's pretty incredible that they've been able to carry out this trick for thirty years.

August 1985

September 1986

April 1988

Cover by Linder Sterling! This issue has multiple covers; I am not sure where this specific one was available. In the US we had James Franco on the cover.
