Bitter Pill

The March 4th 2013 cover of TIME is noteworthy.  I just stumbled upon it and loved it.

It takes guts and talent to try and pull off a white on white cover. 

The subject matter matters on this cover…appealing bang on to the anxieties of greying boomers.

Clean and uncluttered.  Less is More.  Radical Clarity.  Yes. Yes and Yes!
