9/11 Images on Book Jacket

"In late January, Alfred A. Knopf will publish "The Good Life," Jay McInerney's first novel in more than six years. Its cover, designed by Chip Kidd, shows a photograph by Quyen Tran of dishes covered with concrete dust. Subtly peeking through the lettering of the title and the author's name is a faint image of one of the World Trade Center towers on fire."

I'll have to check it out at B&N the next time I'm there because it's difficult to see. I kept wanting to brush the dust away so I could see the image.

Nice use of the grid.
