Our Front Pages: 21 Years of Greatness, Virtue, and Moral Rectitude from America's Finest News Source Cover

 

Staff Pick

A brilliant collection of the very best (and oldest) of the Onion's front pages. If you can't find at least one thing to laugh at on every single page, you can stop wondering why no one invites you to their parties.

Publisher Comments:

From The Birth Of A Nation To The Death Of Journalism

Since its founding by a bloodthirsty tyrant in 1756, The Onion has not merely changed the way we think about the news — it has changed whether we think about the news at all.

As the first decade of this new millennium draws to a close, Our Front Pages shows us the first thing that presidents, kings, prime ministers, and popes saw when they opened their eyes each morning for the last 21 years. Now you, the common reader and citizen, can see what they saw and be as informed as they were with this important retrospective of the past two decades. You, too, will realize what generations before have realized and generations yet unborn will some day realize in turn: The Onion is not merely the chronicle of America. The Onion is America.

Synopsis:

Celebrating 20 years of The Onion, this irreverent, smart, and wonderfully wry collection — with commentary — features the very best of the publication's front pages from 1988 to 2008. Full color throughout.
