Ms. Mouly has been responsible for over 900 covers over her tenure at The New Yorker, many of which have been chosen by The American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) as 'best cover of the year'.

This is a very high quality set of postcards.
DougM
I actually love my weekly New Yorker more for the covers than for the sameness and predictability of the stories and articles.
Anne Salazar
Over 90% of them are so cute that my friends will be so happy when they receive my postcards.

Just fabulous! Here is a box of postcards of New Yorker covers from the 1920s through 2011. I was really looking forward to them but had some qualms that they might be chosen for their "political correctness" and am happy to say that they were not! In fact, for the most part, these covers appear to have been chosen for their humor, nostalgia, clean lines, story-telling, great colors and somewhat seasonal factors. Not all of my favorites are here, but then I probably have a good deal more than 100 favorites.

I have been a subscriber to The New Yorker for many years and the editors deserve heartfelt applause for daring to stay with the artistic covers and for not falling into the trap of alternating movie stars like Vanity Fair and every single other magazine has done to the immense boredom of readers and subscribers. I actually love my weekly New Yorker more for the covers than for the sameness and predictability of the stories and articles. I sincerely hope that by saying this I haven't jinxed these great artists, and Francoise Mouly, the Art Editor of the magazine, is to be congratuated!

These postcards are very heavy duty. The print on the cards is very detailed and in vivid colors. These are a great buy for the price!

These postcards are amazing. Well worth the price. Some of them were so funny that I couldn't bring myself to mail them to anyone...I want to keep and frame 'em. I had never really paid attention to the New Yorker magazine covers before and am so glad that I ordered this product. A great price for 100 postcards is what got my attention, and I'm glad it did.

Bought this book to use the postcards as the guestbook at my wedding. My fiance and I live in New York, but we are from the South. I am trying to find creative ways to share our NYC life with guests, and this is the perfect way! I bought several other New York postcard books because we are having 350 guests and this was by far the best value as I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars to track down cool and unique postcards for so many people. Definitely a great purchase and very happy about the price.

I hope this is the first of several sets as I would like to have a copy of all the good New Yorker covers. Even if these are all the best, there were bound to be other honorable mention covers we could have as a second and/or third set.

As a collector of postcard sets, I really like this one in its own box.

Fabulous! These postcards come in very handy when traveling to New York and beyond. I don't have to go looking for postcards to send.

Such a deal! Study card stock, sized for postcard postage, charming New Yorker covers. At 100 cards, about the best deal per card for those of us who use a lot of postcards. As a shut-in on the Left Coast who can't go card-shopping, and who needs to economize, I use postcards to send notes, birthday and anniversary greetings, and to send notes 2-3 times a week to a 99-yr-old aunt in a retirement residence on the Right Coast. Email and other electronic media are nice, but there are times when snail mail, even if just a postcard, is really nice.
