Today is the 13th anniversary of the attacks on the Twin Towers and a day of sober reflection on that world-changing day. Unsurprisingly The New Yorker has dedicated several covers to the tragedy and its aftermath over the years, and this week they posted a slideshow of 12 of the best. From Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly’s dark-outlined early contribution to more satirical efforts in subsequent years, the covers provide a potent reminder of the power illustration can still wield in modern society.
See the whole selection on The New Yorker website.
