Reflecting the taboos

I'm a sucker for (the occasional) metallic-inked covers. Cyzo (サイゾー) – a pop- and general-culture/exposé/news magazine – has an excellent gloss and matte, rainbow-coloured cover for the theme of "The new Japanese taboo" for its November issue.

(The cover doesn't fully really reflect the inside, just sells it – Cyzo always features a sexy young woman on its cover for its presumably mostly male audience, so hardly a taboo there! There is a girl-group marketing "taboo" among the features inside, but others include yakuza, nuclear power, Imperial family, reporting taboos etc.)
