Some covers are instantly iconic, as is the case with the July 27th–August 9th cover of New York magazine.

This bold, risk-taking cover has gained the magazine tons of free media exposure both on social media and has been covered widely on TV, Radio, and newspapers.

Kudos to New York magazine for the courage to publish such an important story.

This may be the cover of the year.

We will report back later in the year to see how it performed on newsstands.
