September Issue covers are the talk of the town when September rolls around, but that leaves so many other great magazines overlooked. Aren't there are other ways to go about bringing readers into the Fall season than interviewing Sarah Jessica Parker or Demi Lovato for the tenth time?

Sometimes that objective distracts from the real message.

Publications with more creative freedom have much more enticing covers that actually reflect our culture. Whether they have collaborations with contemporary artists or transform their magazines into a creative sticker book, technology has allowed magazines to come up with more innovative ways to present themselves. The Coolest Magazine Covers of September 2013 are far more interesting than the typical magazines you see on your newsstand.
