What's behind the cover of Boston Magazine this month?  Take a look and see.

The editors of Boston Magazine say they "have been humbled by the reception" their May cover has received.  In one writer's opinion it is praise well-deserved.


Design director Brian Struble and deputy design director, Liz Noftle, are behind the photo.  And yes, the shoes were actually those worn during the Boston Marathon on that fateful day.  Kudos to John Wolfson, Editor-in-Chief of the publication, for giving it the go ahead.

Those who stand together with the people of Boston think it is simple, poignant, brilliant.
