The Onion Magazine Iconic Covers
Perhaps even more notable than The Onion newspaper is its Sunday magazine supplement, The Onion Magazine. First published in 1808 as a mouthpiece to relentlessly discredit Enlightenment ideals and as a vehicle for lucrative casket advertisements, The Onion Magazine quickly secured its place as the most popular reading material among the world’s literate and semi-literate. The Onion Magazine has since grown into the largest magazine publisher on earth, expanding to include the famed Weekender magazine in 1837, the first ever hourly magazine in 1891, and the world’s first glossy Braille magazine in 1920.
