Since 1993, when Françoise Mouly joined The New Yorker as art editor she has been responsible for over 1,000 of the magazine’s signature covers, many of which were chosen by The American Society of Magazine Editors as ‘best cover of the year’. She is also the Publisher and Editorial Director of TOON Books, an imprint of comics and visual narratives for young readers. And she founded and coedited (with collaborator and husband Art Spiegelman) the groundbreaking comics anthology RAW; The New York Times-bestselling Little Lit series; and the TOON Treasury of Classic Children’s Comics. Born in Paris, Françoise Mouly studied architecture at the Beaux Arts before she moved to New York in 1974. Ms. Mouly has been awarded France’s highest honor, the Legion of Honneur.
