Harry on Cover Art

I’m more of a New Yorker reader than a reader of Vanity Fair.
It is something of an indulgence. Well, reading restaurant reviews of places I’m never going to visit is maybe just pointless. But the point about the New Yorker is enjoying the writing. And the cartoons. And sometimes the cover just hits the spot.
They ran a very relevant and witty homage to Steinberg during the election .

And the issue I bought yesterday is notable. Dated November 10 it obviously went to press just before election day.
There isn’t any other magazine that does this sort of thing.
It’s creativity of a very high order.

I loved that cover. Light at the end of the tunnel, indeed.

My favorite NYer cover, though, was the one with the map of the 5 boroughs all divided up with names like Pashimnastan, Flatbushtuns and Choos.

and it looks like Michelle Obama's election-night dress too.
