Boston Magazine cover you gotta see

BY Sam Gardner • April 25, 2013

Last week’s tragic bombings at the Boston Marathon produced some stunning, if heartbreaking, imagery, which led to some of the more poignant magazine tribute covers you’ll ever see — from The New Yorker and Sports Illustrated to Time Magazine and others.

But perhaps no magazine set the tone quite like Boston Magazine did with its cover for the May issue of the publication, its first since the bombings. The cover image, which the magazine tweeted out Thursday morning, shows a heart formed out of dozens of colorful pairs of shoes from the marathon, with the words, “We Will Finish The Race” in the middle.

The gorgeous piece of artwork perfectly captures the undaunted spirit of the city of Boston as it begins to recover from the brutal attacks, serving as a reminder of all the good in people that was able to shine through in the face of something so evil.

Here’s an even larger image of the spectacular May edition of Boston Magazine.
