Background:

While The New Yorker magazine is known for the quality of its writing, many people also recognize the distinctive cover style and cartoons featured in the magazine.

We are pleased to feature a selection of original cover art from 1950s.  The covers are noteworthy for the range of their subject matter - life of the upper and middle class, sporting activities and the "big city".

The covers shown here include work by frequent contributors to The New Yorker during the early years of publication including Peter Arno, Constantin Alajalov, Abe Birnbaum, Garret Price, Arthur Getz and Rea Irvin (whose illustration of Eustace Tilley - the fictional East Side dandy - appeared on the cover of the first issue on February 21, 1925).

The appeal of The New Yorker covers is best summarized by the following description from a book on the history of the magazine:   The covers capture "A special moment, fleetingly observed".
