The phone rings. Email dings. I do my best to answer questions about the magazine. This one has to do with an itsy, bitsy, teeny-weeny purple and red bikini…
Question: Could you tell me what brand the bikini is from your July cover?
My Answer: The cover is a popular place. Practically every month for fifteen years someone has asked about purchasing something on it—a mod sofa, a motorcycle, a dress, a piece of cake. The answer to these questions usually lies in the gutter—the gutter of the magazine that is (the space along the inside spine on the left when you open a magazine; it typically holds credits). The cover credits usually appear in the gutters of our table of contents (TOC) pages. In this case, page 4.
For those who don’t have the issue handy, that cute little bikini is a ISSA LONDON NYLON BIKINI.
