The Worst-Looking Government Report Ever?

Over at out sister site, The Atlantic, Alexis Madrigal is running a contest aimed at finding the "best (i.e., worst) government report cover." The idea is to identify "awesomely bad" designs for official government studies and documents.

He provides one example from the Defense Department that is, shall we say, a little less than visually compelling. (A portion of it is featured above.)

Inspired by the contest, I've spent more time than I should have this afternoon Googling images of government reports. Most  are actually pretty nice, truth be told. But there are some that leave a bit to be desired, such as this 2010 example from Sandia National Laboratory.

Still, I'm guessing the folks in the GovExec audience can come up with much worse examples. So have at it!
