The New Yorker covers: August 9, 1982


Over the years, there have been many magazines whose covers have featured the work of highly talented artists and illustrations. But probably no magazine has had more varied and memorable covers, over a longer period of time, than The New Yorkerwhich was founded in 1925. Yes, there have been some duds. Some covers have not aged well. But many New Yorker covers are stunning, no matter how old. Witty. Whimsical. Poignant. Pointed. Or some combination thereof.
