I wouldn’t have expected this of the New Yorker.
There’s been a lot of talk about how to properly commemorate the tenth anniversary of 9/11, without improperly exploiting it commercially. To my mind, this promotion from the New Yorker, usually an arbiter of good taste, crossed the line into skin-crawl territory:
Perhaps they should now rethink what to do with the remainder of the proceeds from the 250 signed lithographs priced at $300 each (not to mention the unsigned prints at $199 framed, $99 unframed—also in “limited editions,” but with the size of the editions not specified). Perhaps the artist, Art Spiegelman, should attempt to insist that this belated return to propriety happens.
