From Princeton University’s Firestone Library Special Collections, “Henry Martin’s Spots” — this piece on Mr. Martin’s considerable Spot Drawing contribution to The New Yorker during his thirty-five year run at magazine. Here’s a fun photo from the article:

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.

The Weekend Spill: A Whither Now? MAD Dartboard; The Online Tilley Watch: December 16 -20, 2019; From The Archives: 1984 “The New Yorker” Cartoonists Traveling Exhibit Poster

A Whither Now? MAD Dartboard

MAD was in the news not long ago when it announced it was no longer going to turn out a brand new content-filled magazine, but rely instead on reprinting older material.  Now the folks at MAD have (sort of) given its readers a game of choice. The below graphic piece appears in the February 2020 issue, along with the news that famed artist Al Jaffee will no longer do the fold-in back page after a gazillion years of doing so.

The Online Tilley Watch, December 16-20, 2019

An end of the week list of New Yorker artists* who contributed to newyorker.com features.

* artists contributing to newyorker.com are of two stripes: some contribute solely to the online magazine, and others cross-over from print to online.  For now, only the artists appearing in print are listed on the Spill‘s A-Z.

 

 

The Daily Cartoon: Ellis Rosen, Brooke Bourgeois, Ali Solomon, Avi Steinberg, Ellie Black.

Daily Shouts: Hilary Fitzgerald Campbell, Ali Solomon.

I may, or may not, have posted this once before — if so, it was quite awhile ago. It’s a great at-a-glance look at The New Yorker‘s cartoon stable, mid 1980s (with a few departed stable mates work included:  Peter Arno, and R.Taylor, among them).
