A postcard collection celebrating 175 years of iconic covers from The Economist.

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 Cover Story is the perfect stocking-filler for the news junky or design buff in your life.

Author bio:

The Economist is an English-language weekly magazine-format newspaper founded by James Wilson in September 1843. Its stated mission is to take part in 'a severe contest between intelligence, which presses forward, and an unworthy, timid ignorance obstructing our progress.'
