so excited by the new york times magazine relaunch. the covers are magical as is this recap of its recent evolution. jake silverstein says, "we have set out to honor the shape of the magazine as it has been, while creating something that will, we hope, strike you as a version you have never read before."

the design director, gail bichler, on the many covers: "we asked several artists to make works based on the idea of chaors in the word, and this is something we have all learned to live with. the only constraint we gave them was that they had to use imagery of the earth or a globe."

 maurizio cattelan and pierpaolo ferrari // "their image of the globe shows "a protaginist erasing the surface of a troubled earth. all at once there is equal terror and peace"

 sara cwynar // one of my favorite artists, "took an old photograph of a globe and ran it through a digital scanner to show "the conflation of old imagery with new technology, a view of a globe drastically altered."
