Passport to Emotion

Our cover story, "Delayed and Denied," presented a unique challenge to illustrator Bill Cigliano, who is especially good at figurative work: There were no people. "My challenge was to paint a landscape that tastefully depicted the Johns Hopkins campus while creating passports that brought an emotional quality to the image like my people do," he explains. "The defeated personality of the passports in contrast to the beauty of the landscape and campus is meant to visually bring across the issues described in the article." The illustrations of Cigliano, who lives and works in Chicago, have appeared in the New York Times Book Review, Boy's Life, and The Wall Street Journal.

About Face

It just so happened that when we called Jim Duffy about profiling Absolutely American author David Lipsky, the book was already at the top of his reading list. "After reading and watching so much about the military in the wake of September 11," says Duffy, "let's just say that much of what I saw sort of clashed with the kneejerk anti-militarism of my own youthful days. I found, and still find, myself very curious about America's military people and their values." Duffy —a full-time freelance writer and a regular contributor to Baltimore magazine, Chesapeake Life, and Chesapeake Bay Magazine —lives in Baltimore with wife Jill Jasuta and their three cats, Dood, Smudge, and Charcoal. —CP
