Head and Shoulders
The face is familiar, but the pecs don't ring a bell? Perhaps John McEnroe's Wimbledon victory went not to his head, but elsewhere? Actually, this photocomposite—McEnroe's head glued onto someone else's body—is part of an ad for a tennis racket. The role of McEnroe's chest is played by Atlanta bodybuilder Ted Matia, 22, who hopes that "Maybe John will invite me to dinner when he comes to town."

Royal R&R
For some kids summer vacation means a trip to camp. But when your name is Iman (Arabic for "faith") el Hussein and your father and mother double as the King and Queen of Jordan, a summer outing is more likely to be a trip to the French Riviera. Getting away from affairs of state for the first time since their 3-month-old daughter's birth, King Hussein and Queen Noor enjoyed a trip aboard a friend's cabin cruiser and a visit to the celebrated Café Senéquier in St.-Tropez. Alas, all play and no work does not go with the territory, as Iman will soon learn. Her dad's itinerary also included a meeting near Cannes with Lebanese president Amin Gemayel.

Chairman of the bored
On the surface it looks as if another rocker has gone Establishment, but The Who's Pete Townshend might swear it wasn't so. He has, however, just arranged for his own imprint with the distinguished London publishing house of Faber & Faber—T.S. Eliot's former employers. Townshend, 38, proposes to stir up a little literary dust with books he will produce on drug-abuse therapy and poems from the welfare line. His goal, he says, is "to create an arena in which people shout."
