The Economist: Cover Story : A History in 100 Postcards Paperback / softback


A high-speed journey through the past two centuries as told through the sharp-witted, sometimes irreverent, always bold covers of The Economist, now available for the first time in jumbo postcard format. In a special introduction, the historian Dominic Sandbrook tells the story of the paper's evolution, both in its editorial and visual style.

The five surviving editors-in-chief of the paper - Andrew Knight, Rupert Pennant-Rea, Bill Emmott, John Micklethwait and Zanny Minton Beddoes - give context and tell stories from their own tenures. And classic covers such as "The Trouble with Mergers" and "Greetings, Earthlings" appear for the first time in a giftable format.

The Economist Covers Collection is the perfect stocking-filler for the news junky or design buff in your life.
