The New Yorker redacts itself | Advertising Age

The New Yorker cover you see above isn’t going out to subscribers and, sadly, is not available for purchase at the newsstand—although plenty of people on social media seem to be mistaking it for the real deal. It’s actually a “bonus daily cartoon” by Barry Blitt, initially published on the magazine’s website in the wake of the release of the redacted Mueller report, and then shared via newyorkermag on Instagram and other channels Friday.

The real April 29 cover of The New Yorker (below) features an illustration by Bob Staake of the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, illuminated by the raging fire that caused so much damage last week. Staake’s piece is titled “Our Lady,” and he issued a simple statement to accompany it: “If history teaches us anything, it’s that out of flames can come rebirth.”
