I’m not sure where or how this cover appears in the actual magazine — a fold-out? Just a digital exercise? But it’s a wonderful photo that I thought was worth sharing, based on this iconic Ormond Gigli picture from the sixties.

You can see the original by clicking the arrow on the right up there in the Instagram embed, but the link I shared above also includes a short Q&A with him about how it came to pass — like an offsite informative caption, if you will. Weirdly, the first thing I thought of when I saw the Gigli shot was the opening credits of The Muppet Show. I am not sure whether he’d be flattered by that or not. Anyway, this updated one is gorgeous work. The pandemic is twisting and warping so much of the world, but at least creativity and art live on, in whatever way we can summon them.
