A photograph from Magnum photographer Martin Parr's series Think of England has been selected as one of twenty limited edition covers for UK Esquire magazine's 20th anniversary issue.

For the Take Cover project, Esquire asked twenty people they most admire from the past 20 years to design a limited edition cover. Alongside Martin Parr, comedian Ricky Gervais and creator of The Simpsons, Matt Groening, have also designed covers.

Parr has won many accolades for his photography, which encourages viewers to take a second look at their surroundings, to uncover the facets of ordinary suburban and provincial life. Sometimes exposing the comic nature of the quotidian and other times the bizarre or tragic, Parr's work is always brilliantly provocative and engaging.
