“Lois’ 1968 cover conveyed a death wish: eyes closed, his face expressionless, Richard Nixon looks as if he were being prepared by a pit crew of morticians for open-casket viewing.”

THE NEW YORK TIMES

 

“Between 1962 and 1971, Esquire featured one remarkable cover after another, each conceived and designed by Madison Avenue’s Wunderkind, George Lois. Lois’ covers are Icons of the age, acerbic critiques of contemporary society, politics and manners that subverted the conventions of mainstream magazines...a chronicle of a magazine in its golden age, a critical period of American social and political turmoil and the legacy of a remarkable graphic designer and communicator.”
