Wordy bird

I'll be wordy just for a sentence or two, to nod to the most recent (no longer that recent!) redesign of The Atlantic. Most designs—even the classical ones—have a subtle date stamp; the November 2008 inauguration of the redesign is no exception. It screams 2008 and is typographically cacaphonous. BUT that was 2008.

The slide show gives a grand tour of the magazine's design evolution and gives a pretty clear view of how time periods are so very much themselves.
