Rockstar Covers Esquire Magazine's 20th Anniversary 'Man At His Best' Issue

Posted on March 31 2011, 10:04am | Author: R* S | Filed Under: Rockstar

For their 20th anniversary, renowned UK men's magazine, Esquire reached out to 20 creators that they felt represented the theme of 'Man At His Best,' and asked them to design a unique version of the Esquire cover for that issue. Rockstar Games had the honor of being selected alongside such esteemed company as comedian and Grand Theft Auto IV alumni Ricky Gervais, drum'n'bass legend Goldie, Saville Row tailor Richard James among others. Our cover art, designed to reflect the decay that exists alongside all things beautiful, definitely warrants close inspection - not only is it a little creepier than it appears at first glance, but you might see a few things you recognize from our games across the years. Check Esquire's write-up on Rockstar Games, alongside the full range of 'Man At His Best' covers on the Esquire UK website here:

                                        Love the cover art! :)

                                        I loved the inclusion of the comedy club in GTA:IV - I wouldn't even know about Katt Williams otherwise! :D
