New Yorker Celebrates 90 Years with Nine Covers

Nine covers for nine decades

NewYorkerLogoThe New Yorker is celebrating its 90th anniversary with nine different covers. Each features a different take on Eustace Tilley, the iconic New Yorker character that appeared on its first cover way back in 1925.

“To celebrate the fact that we’re entering our tenth decade, we turned, as we do every week, to our artists for ideas, and this time we decided to publish more than one,” wrote the magazine’s art editor, Françoise Mouly. “We picked nine covers for our ninety years, selecting images that reflect the talent and diversity of our contributors and the range of artistic media they use.”

Artists that contributed covers included Kadir Nelson, Barry Blitt, Peter Mendelsund, Carter Goodrich, Roz Chast, Anita Kunz, Lorenzo Mattotti, Istvan Banyai and Christoph Niemann. They’re all great, but our favorite is by Banyai. Check out each cover below.
