One of the best experiences this writer has ever had was spending time with George Lois at his Manhattan apartment in preparation for his December 2010 14-page feature in Juxtapoz.

A few months back, I (first person for this post, I, the web editor) sat down with George Lois at his Manhattan apartment for a conversation about his career and magazines. Most of that conversation was published in our new December 2010 Juxtapoz, but for the next few weeks, we are posting bonus coverage on the website. We think its important.
