Esquire is a monthly mens magazine first published in 1933 with the mission “to become the common denominator of masculine interests—to be all things to all men.” Well 82 years later, Esquire is still around with several international editions and it’s own cable TV network. I’m a particularly a huge fan of some of their iconic covers from the 1940s and 50s, and their type-heavy covers of today. When I was in Nashville, TN over Christmas, I saw a clothing store that use spreads and covers from vintage issues as wallpaper. The images were so graphic and cool – now I’m on a mission to find some of my own. Until then, check out a few of my favorites through the years. Get into it.

Today Esquire seems to be know for their type-heavy expressive covers. Can’t get enough of these! And for George Clooney.
Seems like he’s graced the cover more than anyone else. But of course I can see why. If you enjoyed this post, check out my entire Pinterest board dedicated to magazine covers here.
