Blog Of Interest: A New Yorker State Of Mind

Want to get away from this period of trial and time-travel to another period of trial? Well here’s an issue for you.

This Spill fave blog looks very closely at the contents of the March 14, 1931 issue of The New Yorker. The blog’s customary deep-dive is, as always, fascinating.

The cover is by the great Rea Irvin.

The third early release New Yorker cover in a month — surely a sign of the times. With the news on overdrive these days I again urge the magazine to consider running an online Daily Cover much as they run a Daily Cartoon and Daily Shouts.

In next week’s cover, Eric Drooker recalls the iconic (c.1930) photo of Grand Central by Hal Morey shown above. Read Francoise Mouly’s brief Q&A with Mr. Drooker here.

Weighing whether to go out for some essentials today, I was reminded of a New Yorker drawing of mine from the issue of March 14, 2011…
