Having fun making Lonely Planet Covers. Picking on China.

I’ve always loved Lonely Planet cover photos.  You’re doing something very essentialistic when you pick one single photo to represent a country and an entire way of life.  You schism off into the stereotypical almost right out the gate.  So then you try not to.  But you can’t avoid it.  What are you gonna do?  Put a picture of a soda can on the cover and say ‘Peru’?   I don’t think so.  It’s Machu Picchu all the way.   Or some natives.
