Who's Who

Behind the Cover

For example, we assumed you would like to know when and where the photos of legendary author and Aspenite James Salter were taken, so we told you. And not alerting you where to find that yummy dessert on page 113 would have been mildly cruel.

Most of all, it would be moronic of us to fail to identify the visages on the Sgt. Pepper’s–inspired cover of this edition of Aspen Sojourner. (If you’re reading these pages as part of Mountain Homestyle magazine, we’ve included the cover image here.)

Those faces are among the hundreds that will appear on stages, behind lecterns, and, in a couple of cases, in spirit only at the concerts, performances, and presentations that make up this summer’s arts and culture calendar.
