New Yorker Date & Price Switcheroo.

It’s only taken me twenty-two years to notice that the New Yorker switched its cover placement of the issue date and issue price.

Since the very first issue, published February 21, 1925, the issue date appeared top left, and the price upper right. Seventy-three years after that first issue, in the summer of 1998, while Tina Brown was exiting her editorship of the magazine (she announced her departure on July 8th) and the double issue of June 22 & 29th gave way to the next issue, dated July 6, 1998, the date and price placements were switched.  I know, I know: small potatoes compared to the more dramatic changes Ms. Brown instituted.

Below, left: The issue of June 22 & 29, 1998. Owen Smith‘s the cover artist.  On the right, the issue of July 6, 1998. Edward Sorel, cover artist.
