The Village Voice cover was from Sept. 25th, 2001. (Art director: Ted Keller, Photographer: Andre Souraujon.)
Reader's Digest is using the same image for the September 2011 issue.
"We thought the Voice cover was so brilliant, so perfect, and so under-seen, that the image should be used again" said RD's creative director, Robert Newman.
Also included a few more 9/11 covers with a similar feel.
Thanks to BN for the covers and info.

I came across this blog today. It has a ton of tributes, ripoffs and everything in between. It's mainly Greek magazines taking off on U.S. magazines. I posted only a few.
There is a lot more on their site:

FSB (Fortune Small Business) cover from May 2008 and Reader's Digest for November 2009.
Fortune Small Business specifically commissioned photographer Michael Cogliantry for the FSB cover. (The type the crook is holding was actually real and made of foam core.) Photo editor for the shoot was Katy Howe Binder.
Looks as if Reader's Digest bought secondary rights to the image and added their own type in the crook's hands.
Thanks to Scott A. Davis for the images and info.

A cool illustration for the May/June 2011 issue of AARP. Design Director Scott A. Davis commissioned Milton Glaser to update his classic Dylan illustration. Thanks to Robert Newman for the heads up.
Worth checking out my previous post where Vanity Fair pays homage to Glaser.

After seeing the latest 'True Blood' magazine cover for EW, I thought I'd see what other covers used this concept. Any other notable 'American Gothic' covers I'm missing? I have a feeling there are some more recent tributes that I'm missing.

Here are some designs & illustrations inspired by the Japan earthquake and tsunami. Interesting to see how different artists approach the same concept. All are nicely done but I think the BusinessWeek and the piece next to it (Edel Rodriguez illo) are my favorites.

While I'd like to think my blog runs the gamut of tributes, parodies, with a little bit of copycat stuff, the "You Thought We Wouldn't Notice" blog has a ton of examples of downright plagarism, thievery and copyright infringement.
Didn't really see any magazine stuff on the site but worth checking out for sure.
Original cover illustration by Jason Holley commissioned by the New Republic in August 2006. Illustration then reused for book cover in 2010. (Illustrator presumably negotiated 2nd print rights to the book company.)
Thanks to Christine Car for this.
