One Minute to Midnight

Design by Jason Booher

The more I look at this, the more I really like it. A few questions:


1. Why are Kennedy, Khrushchev and Castro facing forward, while LBJ (or RFK?) has his back turned? Students of history: does anything about LBJ's role in the Cuban Missile Crisis help explain this?

2. Such a Russian-looking design for (according to advance reviews) an even-handed, objective analysis. Resolved: there are very few design tropes that could have been used here that would have represented the American side of things and not mucked this up horribly. Discuss.

3. Is anyone else getting the overall impression of a playing card?

What if they had used some sort of clock, with kennedy and kruschev in place of the hour and minute hands on the clock?

It's not LBJ. It's Bobby Kennedy.

Jason Booher is the designer.

I like that--a skewed playing card to boot, to suggest the ridiculous stakes of the game?

Thanks Helen!
