  BadoLe Droit, Ottawa, September 12, 2001.
Here is the work of some of my distinguished colleagues:

The following cartoon, by Terry Mosher, was published in Portfoolio 17 as the book was going to press:

AislinThe Gazette, Montreal, September 13, 2001.
Art SpiegelmanThe New Yorker, September 24, 2001.
Françoise Mouly, art director of The New Yorker on the origin of that cover:
“Ten years ago, my husband, the cartoonist Art Spiegelman, our daughter, and I stood four blocks away from the second tower as we watched it collapse in excruciatingly slow motion. Later, back in my office, I felt that images were suddenly powerless to help us understand what had happened. The only appropriate solution seemed to be to publish no cover image at all—an all-black cover. Then Art suggested adding the outlines of the two towers, black on black. So from no cover came a perfect image, which conveyed something about the unbearable loss of life, the sudden absence in our skyline, the abrupt tear in the fabric of reality.”
