The most traditional and respected newspaper in the world, The New York Times, with a rigor in its aesthetics and layout since its foundation in 1851, this Sunday published an unprecedented historical cover: the beginning of a list, with a brief history, of a thousand victims of the Coronavirus in the United States, which extended through the internal pages.
There are already 100,000 fatal victims of the pandemic in the country, ahead of Brazil alone. ‘They were not simply names on a list. They were us’, says excerpt from the first page.
For Simone Landon, one of NYT’s graphic publishers, ‘we were looking for a way to recognize the size of this number.
The cover is also a response to some of the fatigue we’re feeling. We’re tired of numbers ’.
