"Icons," by Bob Staake, next week's cover of The New Yorker

"Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court, died on Friday, at the age of eighty-seven. Ginsburg spent nearly three decades on the country's highest bench, and five decades as a tireless scholar, teacher, and advocate of equality. To commemorate her, the artist Bob Staake said, he 'needed to think of a graphic metaphor that embodied Ginsburg's life and legacy.' He wanted something that was 'honest and no-nonsense,' like Ginsburg, and he landed on her lace collar, a symbol not just of Ginsburg but, in Staake's drawing, of women everywhere."
