Good but not a home run
on September 13, 2012
If you like the modern New Yorker covers, this book will be interesting but not fascinating. If you like the old New Yorker magazine, do not buy this book. There's not enough good stories about the covers and there's not really enough rejected covers either. Yes, there's a couple of killer-bad taste covers that were rejected but over-all you say: 'so what'. The best part is a series of self caricatures from the cover artists themselves in the back of the book. The New Yorker magaine has such a long history and variety of covers...why do they only talk about the last 15 years.
