The Unfortunate Peace Sign… or Pride covers that might have been

We loved this alternate version of the shot — the energy is extraordinary, the gender balance and diversity, exceptional. If it weren’t for that one little unfortunate hand placment, one that became even more apparent after the logo was affixed (funny how logos have a way of creating focus). I think my exact words were “We can’t put that on the cover. Can we? No, no, no, we just can’t.” (Click the images to enlarge.)
