The ‘Forward,’ ‘Brüno,’ and Pickles

Excellence in design

We earlier in the week declared a moratorium on all things Brüno, partially because there’s really nothing Jewish about it and mostly because it’s sort of terrible. But we must temporarily lift that moratorium to appreciate the excellent work of the Forward’s art department, as demonstrated by the placement of teaser art on the new issue’s cover. So: nice work. Moratorium now reinstated.
