The interface allows the user to browse in time all of the covers of the weekly El País Semanal (EPS). This dynamic, fluid view lets us witness the evolution of the magazine's design and at the same time eloquently displays the evolution of fashions in colour over the years. For example, it makes powerfully clear the preference for bright colours in the 80s and for grey tones after 2008. It is also, of course, a magnificent tool for exploring the history of Spain during the Transition by way of its series of covers.
