Like the Council of Elrond except with nicer coffee and more meticulous flatplans, the men and women of the Professional Publishers Association have gathered and drawn up a shortlist of the greatest magazine covers of the last 100 years. We're proud to announce that Empire's Darth Vader cover, a breathing Sith Lord that adorned the magazine's June 2005 issue, is one of ten nominated for the PPA's prestigious Cover of the Century.

Empire's Darth Vader Breathing Cover - Vote Now!

Click here to vote for Empire's cover on the PPA website. Do it because, well, who doesn't love a magazine that can intimidate you from the shelf of a news agent, or because Lord Vader will dispatch probe droids to your home if you don't. Either way, you can have a look at the fantastic designs recognised by the PPA here.

The PPA Cover of the Century will be announced on November 21.

Who designed it?
A shame none of the art editors/directors are mentioned in the shortlist. Who was yours? More

RE: Voted! Woooo!
A couple of them are pretty boring - top covers of the century? And how did it take Time Out 24 hrs to take a pic of 2 fingers? Very odd.  More
