Above is the cover; below, some shots of the layout from The Wall here at Newsweek world headquarters, courtesy of our lovely and talented art director Lindsay Ballant, who was one of the folks in charge of digging through the archives and resurrecting the magazine’s sharp, spare mid-1960s design.

How your Newsweek gets made.
Ever wonder how Newsweek made some of its more elaborate graphics back in the day? Check out this look back by Karl Gude, the magazine’s former Director of Information Graphics (and a current MSU professor), who discusses what it was like to create an insanely detailed graphic like this way back in 2001. In the case of this particular piece, it included dressing people up as soldiers. Seriously. Awesome piece. You’ll dig it.
