Cover Illustration by Talking Heads

The illustration on our cover
is unique. It was created for
us by the subjects of our cover
story, the Talking Heads.
The process began when Art
Director Robert J. George, Pho-
to Editor Nia Krikellas Button
and the Talking Heads could
not agree on the perfect cover
image. Perhaps they would like
to do their own, George and
Button suggested, and the
Talking Heads-three of whom
had studied at the Rhode Island
School of Design-thought that
a fine idea. Button chose indi-
vidual pictures, and Americo J.

Calvo of NEWSWEEK'S photo lab
printed them specially on the
kind of paper that photograph-
ic hand colorists use. George
then prepared art kits-paints,
brushes, markers, paper, matte
knives, a preliminary cover
sketch and guidelines, includ-
ing, "Have Fun."
The Talking Heads obviously
did. With the pieces of art that
Tina Weymouth, Jerry Harri-
son, Chris Frantz and David
Byrne sent us, George executed
the complete illustration. It
makes a fitting companion to
Ron Givens's cover story.

We conclude another aca-
demic year for NEWSWEEK ON
CAMPUS on a note of consider-
able pride. The Education Writ-
ers Association awarded us
first place, second place and
one of two special citations for
the best 1987 coverage of educa-
tion among national maga-
zines-that is, all national
magazines. The stories: "Is the
Dream Over?", February 1987,
which examined the reasons
behind the decreasing percent-
age of black students in college,
first; "Celebrity Professors,"
September 1987, second, and
"Burnout," October 1987, hon-
orable mention. In accepting
the awards, we said that these
stories represented the serious
reporting that our readers ex-
pect from us, and "we are
pleased that our colleagues in
journalism notice as well."
