Cover of the month: May 11th issue of The Economist

“The horror, the horror” says the tagline beneath Angela Merkel’s face.  The “Acropolis now” cover of The Economist, which came out on May 11th, was one of the best covers I’ve seen so far this year. Plus, it’s on a touchy subject and I love puns (especially at the Germans’ expense) and the idea of the spoof off the Apocalypse Now poster.

Everything is there, the helicopters above the Parthenon and the sunset…genius!
