The Power of a Well Conceived Graphic

The image below, taken from Time magazine, captured my attention by its representation of America's withdrawal from Iraq.

This piece demonstrates the subtle but effective balance of a well conceived and execute work of graphic communication. Especially haunting is the void left by the lifting of the "A" (fashioned in the colors of red, white and blue) from its place in "Iraq"; essentially leaving "Iraq" broken/separated into parts and the "Q" alone and isolated.
