Blown Covers — the website; Clowes retrospective; Brunetti speaks

Here’s something I missed until this morning:  a website devoted to the upcoming collection, Blown Covers: New Yorker Covers You Were Never Meant to See, edited by Francoise Mouly.   Due April 30, 2012 from Abrams.  Full details can be found on your favorite online bookstore site/s.

 

Look for this online: today’s New York Times, March 30, 2012:  “Humanity’s Discomfort, Punctured With a Pen” — a piece (with video) on a Daniel Clowes’s restrospective at the Oakland Museum. No link…you’ll find it on the Times homepage.

 

And from Hyperallergic.com, March 30, 2012, “Poets, Painters, Cartoonists and Moonlighters” — this post (with Ivan Brunetti content).
