Editor's Pick

The New Yorker asked artists, and readers, to contribute their interpretations of the magazine's iconic front cover dandy (Eustace Tilley, for those that didn't know), for its 90th anniversary issue. The magazine has selected nine covers for its ninety years, showing Tilley variously depicted in guises such as a hippy, punk, in female form in digital art, and -- appropriately for the 21st century -- glued to a smartphone. Artists include long-time New Yorker illustrators such as Barry Blitt and Lorenzo Mattotti.
