Tracey Emin has designed the cover of this week's New Statesman, which is guest edited by Melvyn Bragg. There are no cover lines getting in the way of Emin's depiction of the Grim Reaper. So, if you want to know what's in the magazine you've got to buy a copy.
I am a freelance journalist based in the UK and was deputy editor of Press Gazette, the journalists' magazine, from 1993 until 2006. I want to give an independent view on media matters.
