The Monday Tilley Watch, The New Yorker Issue Of July 22, 2019

The Cover:    As you can see by the puzzled fellow icon, I am a little puzzled (though not completely puzzled) by Christoph Niemann’s Geico-esque subway cover for the July 15th issue. Luckily, there’s the go-to weekly Q&A for those in need of clarity.

The Cartoonists:

The Newbie: Madeline Horwath debuts this week.  She is the 21st new New Yorker cartoonist this year and the 47th to join the magazine’s stable under Emma Allen’s cartoon editorship (begun in May of 2017).

The Cartoons: A first impression after going through the magazine was the number of cartoons afforded generous space. Not too small, not too big, just right.  

A Selection Of The Magazine’s Moon covers: In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, there’s a page of four New Yorker covers by four artists: Charles Addams, Charles E. Martin (C.E.M.), Laura Jean Allen, and John O’Brien. But let’s not forget Alajalov, whose three Moon-centric covers perhaps qualifies him as King Of The Moon Covers.

Rea Irvin: How wonderful would it be to see Mr. Irvin’s Talk masthead return to the place it held for 92 years Until then, here’s Joe Starrett’s famous last line in Shane:“Shane! Shane! Come Back!”
