"Blown Covers" Blog Launch

Francoise Mouly, art director for the covers of New Yorker magazine, has launched a blog called “Blown Covers.

She’ll be sharing the behind-the-scenes stories of the making of the New Yorker covers, showing some of the “covers you were never meant to see.” She is also inviting anyone in Blogland to contribute ideas to themes that she presents each week on Monday.

Today she invited people to submit ideas for March: “In like a lion, out like a lamb.”

Anyone who submits should “mix your metaphors, make it current and push the limits.” If you win, there's no guarantee of getting on the cover, but she's "always on the lookout for new ideas."

Mouly will soon be coming out with a book called “Blown Covers," continuing the New Yorker's tradition of showing the interesting stuff that didn't get into the magazine.
