This week TIME released the cover of its special commemorative “Beyond 9/11” issue, marking the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York. The front cover image by Julian LaVerdiere and Paul Myoda, co-creators of the original Tribute in Light memorial in New York City, shows a photo-illustration imagining the memorial as seen from space. The cover also features a silver border—only the third cover in the mag’s 88-year history without the trademark red border. Ten years ago, in the days following the September 11 attacks, TIME changed its border for the first time in history, to black.
TIME’s Beyond 9/11 project also includes a photography and documentary components. Portraits of Resilience, featuring portraits by Marco Grob coupled with oral histories of 40 men and women, including George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and Rudolph Giuliani, will go live on a special website September 7th. And a one-hour documentary, “Beyond 9/11: Portraits of Resilience,” will air on HBO and CNN and stream on TIME.com on Sept. 11th.
The Beyond 9/11 edition will hit newsstands on Thursday, September 8.
