The Atlantic’s May 2019 cover is a typography-only design.

  • The design is an adaptation of George Packer’s book “Our Man: Richard Holbrooke and the End of the American Century.”
  • Designed by Peter Mendelsund, the magazine’s creative director, the bold cover used yellow and red.
  • The layout combines the publication’s iconic logotype with headlines and two columns of text, all set in serif typefaces.
