Once again Donald Trump has got his wish – he’s on the front cover of TIME magazine – just not quite in the way he probably hoped for. After the former president was found guilty of falsifying business records in a hush-money scandal, TIME released a surprisingly stylish cover to commemorate the news. 

Cover design (whether book, magazine or beyond) can tell a story all in itself. Created by visual artist Edel Rodriguez, the simple yet striking illustration not only encompasses a prominent historical moment but expertly does so in a punchy and poignant style.
