The Esquire Magazine covers by legendary art director George Lois chronicled the turbulent sixties with distinctly powerful imagery. His bravado, humor and brilliant concepts challenged the status quo of magazine design and changed the ways and means of the world of communication. The Museum of Modern Art has a collection of his Esquire covers in their permanent collection.
