Author Ben Arogundade examines President Trump’s rise from real estate mogul to the White House, via a unique collection of his newspaper and magazine front covers, from 1979 to the present. The selection contains many rare images viewers will never have seen.

Trump is the most vilified US president of all time, derided on more covers than any other. He has been depicted as the anti-Christ, Adolf Hitler, The Joker, a Ku Klux Klansman, a terrorist, a psychopath, a narcissist and a sexual predator, to name but a few. Are such portrayals fair or fake, and how can they help us understand how this extraordinary moment in history came to pass?

Arogundade is a London-based author and publisher. He is also author of Obama: 101 Best Covers. His first book, Black Beauty, on society’s historical perceptions of the black image was made into a three-part BBC documentary.
