On the newsstands this week and next (because it’s a double issue): The New Yorker Anniversary issue (yes, it’s called that on the Table of Contents).
Eustace Tilley, as you can see by the cover, has returned, albeit not Rea Irvin’s original.
Small ChangeS Noted:
At the bottom of the Table of Contents, the typeface used for the Drawings (meaning cartoons) has returned to this font…
…after a brief flirtation with the font below as part of the magazine’s re-design of certain sections (Goings On About Town, etc.):
ALSO: Was happy to see the (refined*) Rea Irvin typeface has returned to the following headings: Goings On About Town, Classical Music, Art, Night Life, Movies, The Theatre, and Above & Beyond. (oddly, Food & Drink is still hanging in there with interlocking “oo”s — a use that goes back to the version of the font in the earliest issues).
