The covers of Flatt (Debbie Harry & Neil Patrick Harris) are by Hattie Stewart and are works of art in their own right.
Flatt #4 (2014) has an amazing Debbie Harry cover shot by Christina Lessa. In that image and in at least one or two of the others inside, Lessa manages to make Debbie look identical to her Rockbird self of very nearly 30 years ago, when Scavullo was capturing the Blondie frontwoman's beauty.
In the wide-ranging interview, also done by Lessa, Debbie has this to say about her late friend Andy Warhol:
“I thought that he was a genius. He did something that was crossover: he took graphic art and technical art and he merged it with fine art. This was, in part, the basic philosophy and theory of pop art. Andy Warhol, part of his genius, was that he was a very good listener. Most people are expounding and talking about their ideas, Andy, he listened.”
