This week’s New Yorker cover by Tom Gauld.

When Tom Gauld sent the first sketch for this week’s cover, “Fall Library,” we discussed a variant where the woman was holding an electronic-book reader. “But I decided against the e-reader,” Gauld says. The image “ended up having too much going on, which made it less interesting. I think the fact that she’s holding one of her millions of books is what’s nice.”

so this guy [chase richardson] took this awesome photo of a proposal in arkansas. problem is, he doesn’t know the couple. it was taken on 9/28/14 at whitaker’s point. find that couple!  (they deserve to see this)
