J.D. Salinger Scavenger Hunt Features Two Famous Magazine Covers

In the summer of 1961, 25 cents at the newsstand got readers a TIME cover illustration of reclusive author J.D. Salinger under the slanted headline “A Private World of Love and Death.” Sixteen years later, Esquire subscribers were treated to an issue teasing the Ron Rosenbaum story “The Haunted Life of J.D. Salinger” with the photo of a Salinger lookalike on the cover shielding his face behind an open book.

These respective September 1961 and June 1997 covers are stealth-featured on the new website launched today by The Weinstein Company for their upcoming documentary Salinger. Stealth in the sense that the materials are not linked on the main navigation menu but rather require some cursor scavenging.

Among those excerpted in the trailer above are actors Edward Norton, Martin Sheen, John Cusack and a photographer who snapped a very famous, rare 1979 picture of the author. The documentary, directed by Shane Salerno, opens September 6.
