    Awesome! I especially love the upright dino’s head against the flat red sky. I think there’s an entire art lesson in that one animal design. Be sure to scroll down to the final image by Garetto (featuring FDR as a puppeteer). It’s wonderful, right down to the tiny cluster of fine print.

    Thanks for posting, Amid!

    Whoa! Terrific graphic design. The covers alone are worth buying theses magazines even today.

    Here’s a great web site of vintage Esquire magazine covers, if interested. http://grainedit.com/2009/09/23/vintage-esquire-covers-1953-1961/
