Wall Street's View of America

Some years ago, New Yorker Magazine cartoonist Saul Steinberg made history with his cover illustration that became known as 'A New Yorker's View of America' (click on the image to the left).

For its May issue, according to Drawn and Quarterly, Fortune Magazine narrowly missed making history just as big when it rejected cartoonist Chris Ware's contemporary homage to Steinberg. The potential cover illustration offers 'Wall Street's View of America' (below).

Be sure to CLICK ON THE PICTURE to enlarge it and see the hilarious details, including "Your Home" along the Gulf of Mexico, the "401k Cemetery," and "The Oracle Buffet."
