most iconic covers. the project was initiated to celebrate the magazine's 75 anniversary. all of the works, with the 
exception of one, are based of covers conceived by esquire's long time art director george lois. in his career with 
the magazine, he helped create 92 covers. a show featuring highlights from his career is currently on show at 
new york's museum of modern art.
