I think, to the extent that magazine covers are visual literacy, we have internalized a kind of literacy in recognizing a magazine cover design or format. But Implied Code is a literacy of interaction/expectation - so that would not be true for these Flickr Magazine Covers... ...and only true for real magazine covers if you opened them expecting to quickly navigate to the content Implied on the cover, and were then able (through your mental model of how the hidden pages magazine works) to do so. Incidentally, as a newspaper reader, I find this incredibly difficult in most magazines, due to the obfuscation of the table of contents, page numbers, and so on - if I were to discuss actual magazines in terms of Implied "Code" my conclusion would probably be that they typically defeat it. In general, I'd probably file it under media literacy, though - Implied Code describing a kind of media literacy that focuses on operational logic....

This sense that what we've written is already print-worthy, even more so when it looks like other things that are print-worthy by virtue of having been printed. And yet, we don't care if the image is ultimately printed in this case. And "printing" is losing its meaning here. I can remember my initial joy at seeing my text on a dot-matrix printer, on a type writer before that, and inkjet and laser afterward. But it was the publishing software that made it, as you say, immediate, and that also gave me tools that were a bit beyond my material expertise. I agree with you, too, that there is this glee in discovering magazine-ness through experimentation. What must be done for the arrangement to read as a magazine cover, which is, if I can borrow an analogy, a bit of a demonstration that we have internalized the codes and conventions of cover design. Have we then also internalized another implied code, Jeremy?
