“ Kennedy without Tears served as both headline and cover line for a story on assessing Jack Kennedy’s political life after he was assassinated and George Lois provided a sly riff on that thesis. A full cover, sepia-toned photograph stares straight out at the reader while, from the bottom of the page, a man’s hand holding a white handkerchief – both depicted in full color – dabbed at a spot under the president’s eye. Above the handkerchief, spilled tears beaded up on the photograph. Was the man attached to the hand weeping? Or was the slain president crying for his lost legacy?”

“ They say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover? But what about a magazine? Well, that can be a different story, especially if the cover of the magazine was created by George Lois, who made Esquire covers back in the ’60s, works of art!”
