The New Yorker cover rejects

Barry Blitt Mentos terrorism

Illustration of Barry Blitt joking about terrorism fears (Diet Coke and Mentos gives a very small explosive reaction), it was never used

I found this very interesting interview with Fran├žoise Mouly about selecting covers for the New Yorker. She just published a book Blown Covers with cover illustrations that never made it to the presses.

Above brilliant illustration is by Barry Blitt. Too bad it never made it on the cover.
