UK riots in the news

August 23, 2011

"The rule of the mob. How the police lost control of our cities": The Week, 13 August 2011

Before the riots spread beyond London, I had worked on a previous version of the cover. Here you can see the original which featured St Paul’s and other London landmarks in the background instead of the Union Jack:
