    Walter Isaacson, former editor of Time and author of Leonardo da Vinci and Steve Jobs:
    Bernard and Glaser revolutionized the look of magazines, and in the process they reinvigorated the art of visual storytelling. This beautiful book, filled with vivid examples of their genius, is an honest and fascinating look at the world of magazine making.
