A finalist in the Magazine Publishers of America 2007 Cover of the Year:


  For its Best & Brightest issue, Esquire asked illustrator Marion Deuchars to draw the coverline, which is one complete sentence. With George Clooney holding a pencil, the implication is that Clooney hand wrote those coverlines. The cover garnered attention not only on the newsstand but from designers and artists everywhere. It also is a twist on what has become known as the signature Esquire cover of crowding the cover with lines while keeping the message clear.

David Simon, series creator of the superb HBO police drama The Wire, recalls his early experiences as a staff reporter for The Baltimore Sun newspaper, in an essay for the March issue of Esquire.

Scarlett Johansson:
How old were you when you lost your virginity?
A.J. Jacobs:
I tell her.
Scarlett Johansson:
Have you ever had a venereal disease?
A.J. Jacobs:
No. Well, there was that one frightening phone call from an ex, but it turned out to be a false alarm.
Scarlett Johansson:
How many girls would you say you’ve slept with?
A.J. Jacobs:
She makes the “I’m impressed” face, which is nice of her, since the number is pretty low, about 2 percent of Hartnett levels, I’m guessing. When I get my notebook back, I ask her about her STD history and sex partners.
Scarlett Johansson:
