The Atlantic goes type-only for May cover
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.
