"Blown Covers" - NEW YORKER covers you were never meant to see...

Blown Covers, der Blog von Françoise Mouly (Art Editor des "New Yorker") und Nadja Spiegelman (Tochter von Françoise Mouly & Art Spiegelman), auf dem seit einigen Monaten Cover-Entwürfe für das Magazin "The New Yorker" präsentiert werden, die (leider) nicht Verwendung fanden, wäre schon länger eine Empfehlung wert gewesen, aber die heutigen Postings rocken alles bisherige:

Françoise Mouly takes us behind the scenes at the New Yorker and reveals how the magazine creates its signature covers commenting on the most urgent political and cultural events of the day. She shows the shocking and hilarious sketches that didn’t make the cut and explains how these are essential stages in the evolution of a cover that stands the test of time but retains its edge. Her book captures contemporary history—from the farce of Monica Lewinsky to the adventures of Michelle and Barack to nuclear meltdown in Japan—in images that are as acute as they are outrageous. More than that, it shows how the magazine that exemplifies journalistic excellence in America also dares to cultivate a sense of humor when grappling with complex moral and political issues.
