Someone e-mailed me this 1993 NEW YORKER cover today...
The towel heads!
For the last 20 years, Françoise [Mouly] has been the art editor of The New Yorker.
Blown Covers: New Yorker Covers You Were Never Meant To See [*Publication Date: April 30, 2012] is her new book. It's a collection of New Yorker covers that were either rejected, caused an outrage, or have an interesting story behind them.
Of the cover above, Françoise says, "In 1993, we published this cover by David Mazzuccelli as the trial of the four men suspected of the bombing of the World Trade Center got underway. There were bomb threats to the magazine, and the image was vehemently denounced -- at the time, most in the media were weary of labeling the men involved as Arab or Muslim terrorists."
