The New Yorker debuted on February 21, 1925 It was founded by Harold Ross and his wife, Jane Grant, a New York Times reporter Ross wanted to create a sophisticated humor magazine that would be different from perceivably "corny" humor publications such as Judge, where he had worked, or Life Ross partnered with entrepreneur Raoul H Fleischmann who founded the General Baking Company to establish the F-R Publishing Company and established the magazine's first offices at 25 West 45th Street in Manhattan Ross edited the magazine until his death in 1951 During the early, occasionally precarious years of its existence, the magazine prided itself on its cosmopolitan sophistication Ross famously declared in a 1925 prospectus for the magazine: "It has announced that it is not edited for the old lady in Dubuque"

Although the magazine never lost its touches of humor, it soon established itself as a pre-eminent forum for serious fiction literature and journalism Shortly after the end of World War II, John Hersey's essay Hiroshima filled an entire issue In subsequent decades the magazine published short stories by many of the most respected writers of the 20th and 21st centuries, including Ann Beattie, Truman Capote, John Cheever, Roald Dahl, Mavis Gallant, Geoffrey Hellman, John McNulty, Joseph Mitchell, Alice Munro, Haruki Murakami, Vladimir Nabokov, John O'Hara, Dorothy Parker, Philip Roth, J D Salinger, Irwin Shaw, James Thurber, John Updike, Eudora Welty, Stephen King, and E B White Publication of Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery" drew more mail than any other story in the magazine's history

In its early decades, the magazine sometimes published two or even three short stories a week, but in recent years the pace has remained steady at one story per issue While some styles and themes recur more often than others in its fiction, the stories are marked less by uniformity than by variety, and they have ranged from Updike's introspective domestic narratives to the surrealism of Donald Barthelme, and from parochial accounts of the lives of neurotic New Yorkers to stories set in a wide range of locations and eras and translated from many languages Writers like Kurt Vonnegut said that The New Yorker has been an effective institution for getting a large audience through the learning process required for appreciating modern literature Kurt Vonnegut's 1974 interview with Joe David Bellamy and John Casey, published in The New Fiction and in Conversations with Kurt Vonnegut, contained a discussion of The New Yorker's influence:

One thing we used to talk about – when I was out in Iowa – was that the limiting factor is the reader No other art requires the audience to be a performer You have to count on the reader's being a good performer, and you may write music which he absolutely can't perform – in which case it's a bust Those writers you mentioned and myself are teaching an audience how to play this kind of music in their heads It's a learning process, and The New Yorker has been a very good institution of the sort needed They have a captive audience, and they come out every week, and people finally catch on to Barthelme, for instance, and are able to perform that sort of thing in their heads and enjoy it I think the same is true of S J Perelman; I do not think that Perelman would be appreciated if suddenly his collected works were to be published now to be seen for the first time It would be gibberish A learning process is required to appreciate Perelman, although it's very easy to do once you learn how to do it Yeah, I think the readers are coming along; that's a problem; I think writers have tried to do it always and have failed because there's been no audience for what they've done; nobody's performed their music

The non-fiction feature articles which usually make up the bulk of the magazine's content cover an eclectic array of topics Recent subjects have included eccentric evangelist Creflo Dollar, the different ways in which humans perceive the passage of time, and Münchausen syndrome by proxy

The magazine is notable for its editorial traditions Under the rubric Profiles, it publishes articles about notable people such as Ernest Hemingway, Henry R Luce and Marlon Brando, Hollywood restaurateur Michael Romanoff, magician Ricky Jay and mathematicians David and Gregory Chudnovsky Other enduring features have been "Goings on About Town", a listing of cultural and entertainment events in New York, and "The Talk of the Town", a miscellany of brief pieces—frequently humorous, whimsical or eccentric vignettes of life in New York—written in a breezily light style, or feuilleton, although in recent years the section often begins with a serious commentary For many years, newspaper snippets containing amusing errors, unintended meanings or badly mixed metaphors "Block That Metaphor" have been used as filler items, accompanied by a witty retort There is no masthead listing the editors and staff And despite some changes, the magazine has kept much of its traditional appearance over the decades in typography, layout, covers and artwork The magazine was acquired by Advance Publications, the media company owned by Samuel Irving Newhouse Jr, in 1985

Ross was succeeded as editor by William Shawn 1951–87, followed by Robert Gottlieb 1987–92 and Tina Brown 1992–98 Among the important nonfiction authors who began writing for the magazine during Shawn's editorship were Dwight Macdonald, Kenneth Tynan, and Hannah Arendt; to a certain extent all three authors were controversial, Arendt the most obviously so her Eichmann in Jerusalem reportage appeared in the magazine before it was published as a book, but in each case Shawn proved an active champion

Brown's nearly six-year tenure attracted more controversy than Gottlieb's or even Shawn's, thanks to her high profile Shawn, by contrast, had been an extremely shy, introverted figure and the changes which she made to a magazine that had retained a similar look and feel for the previous half-century She introduced color to the editorial pages several years before The New York Times and photography, with less type on each page and a generally more modern layout More substantively, she increased the coverage of current events and hot topics such as celebrities and business tycoons, and placed short pieces throughout "Goings on About Town", including a racy column about nightlife in Manhattan A new letters-to-the-editor page and the addition of authors' bylines to their "Talk of the Town" pieces had the effect of making the magazine more personal The current editor of The New Yorker is David Remnick, who succeeded Brown in 1998

Tom Wolfe wrote about the magazine: "The New Yorker style was one of leisurely meandering understatement, droll when in the humorous mode, tautological and litotical when in the serious mode, constantly amplified, qualified, adumbrated upon, nuanced and renuanced, until the magazine's pale-gray pages became High Baroque triumphs of the relative clause and appository modifier"

Joseph Rosenblum, reviewing Ben Yagoda's About Town, a history of the magazine from 1925 to 1985, wrote, " The New Yorker did create its own universe As one longtime reader wrote to Yagoda, this was a place 'where Peter DeVries was forever lifting a glass of Piesporter, where Niccolò Tucci in a plum velvet dinner jacket flirted in Italian with Muriel Spark, where Nabokov sipped tawny port from a prismatic goblet while a Red Admirable perched on his pinky, and where John Updike tripped over the master's Swiss shoes, excusing himself charmingly"

As far back as the 1940s the magazine's commitment to fact-checking was already well known Yet the magazine played a role in a literary scandal and defamation lawsuit over two 1990s articles by Janet Malcolm, who wrote about Sigmund Freud's legacy Questions were raised about the magazine's fact-checking process As of 2010, The New Yorker employs 16 fact checkers In July 2011, the magazine was sued for defamation in United States district court for a July 12, 2010 article written by David Grann, but the case was summarily dismissed

Since the late 1990s, The New Yorker has used the Internet to publish current and archived material It maintains a website with some content from the current issue plus exclusive web-only content Subscribers have access to the full current issue online, as well as a complete archive of back issues viewable as they were originally printed In addition, The New Yorker's cartoons are available for purchase online A digital archive of back issues from 1925 to April 2008 representing more than 4,000 issues and half a million pages has also been issued on DVD-ROMs and on a small portable hard drive More recently, an iPad version of the current issue of the magazine has been released

In its November 1, 2004 issue, the magazine for the first time endorsed a presidential candidate, choosing to endorse Democrat John Kerry over incumbent Republican George W Bush This was continued in 2008 when the magazine endorsed Barack Obama over John McCain, and in 2012 when it endorsed Obama over Mitt Romney

Change of ownership

In 1959, the magazine was acquired by Samuel I Newhouse and became part of his media empire, Advance Publications


The New Yorker has featured cartoons usually gag cartoons since it began publication in 1925 The cartoon editor of The New Yorker for years was Lee Lorenz, who first began cartooning in 1956 and became a New Yorker contract contributor in 1958 After serving as the magazine's art editor from 1973 to 1993 when he was replaced by Françoise Mouly, he continued in the position of cartoon editor until 1998 His book The Art of the New Yorker: 1925–1995 Knopf, 1995 was the first comprehensive survey of all aspects of the magazine's graphics In 1998, Robert Mankoff took over as cartoon editor, and since then Mankoff has edited at least 14 collections of New Yorker cartoons In addition, Mankoff usually contributes a short article to each book, describing some aspect of the cartooning process or the methods used to select cartoons for the magazine

The New Yorker's stable of cartoonists has included many important talents in American humor, including Charles Addams, Peter Arno, Charles Barsotti, George Booth, Roz Chast, Tom Cheney, Sam Cobean, Leo Cullum, Richard Decker, Helen E Hokinson, Ed Koren, Reginald Marsh, Mary Petty, George Price, Charles Saxon, David Snell, Otto Soglow, Saul Steinberg, William Steig, James Stevenson, Richard Taylor, James Thurber, Pete Holmes, Barney Tobey, and Gahan Wilson

Many early New Yorker cartoonists did not caption their own cartoons In his book The Years with Ross, Thurber describes the newspaper's weekly art meeting, where cartoons submitted over the previous week would be brought up from the mail room to be gone over by Ross, the editorial department and a number of staff writers Cartoons would often be rejected or sent back to artists with requested amendments, while others would be accepted and captions written for them Some artists hired their own writers; Helen Hokinson hired James Reid Parker in 1931 Brendan Gill relates in his book Here at The New Yorker that at one point in the early 1940s, the quality of the artwork submitted to the magazine seemed to improve It was later found out that the office boy a teenaged Truman Capote had been acting as a volunteer art editor, dropping pieces he didn't like down the far edge of his desk

Several of the magazine's cartoons have climbed to a higher plateau of fame One 1928 cartoon drawn by Carl Rose and captioned by E B White shows a mother telling her daughter, "It's broccoli, dear" The daughter responds, "I say it's spinach and I say the hell with it" The phrase "I say it's spinach" entered the vernacular and three years later, the Broadway musical Face the Music included Irving Berlin's musical number titled "I Say It's Spinach And The Hell With It" The catchphrase "back to the drawing board" originated with the 1941 Peter Arno cartoon showing an engineer walking away from a crashed plane, saying, "Well, back to the old drawing board"

The most reprinted is Peter Steiner's 1993 drawing of two dogs at a computer, with one saying, "On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog" According to Mankoff, Steiner and the magazine have split more than $100,000 in fees paid for the licensing and reprinting of this single cartoon, with more than half going to Steiner

Over seven decades, many hardcover compilations of cartoons from The New Yorker have been published, and in 2004, Mankoff edited The Complete Cartoons of The New Yorker, a 656-page collection with 2004 of the magazine's best cartoons published during 80 years, plus a double CD set with all 68,647 cartoons ever published in the magazine This features a search function allowing readers to search for cartoons by a cartoonist's name or by year of publication The newer group of cartoonists in recent years includes Pat Byrnes, Frank Cotham, Michael Crawford, Joe Dator, Drew Dernavich, J C Duffy, Carolita Johnson, Zachary Kanin, Farley Katz, Robert Leighton, Glen Le Lievre, Michael Maslin, Ariel Molvig, Paul Noth, Barbara Smaller, David Sipress, Mick Stevens, Julia Suits, Christopher Weyant, P C Vey, and Jack Ziegler The notion that some New Yorker cartoons have punchlines so non sequitur that they are impossible to understand became a subplot in the Seinfeld episode "The Cartoon", as well as a playful jab in an episode of The Simpsons, "The Sweetest Apu"

In April 2005, the magazine began using the last page of each issue for "The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest" Captionless cartoons by The New Yorker's regular cartoonists are printed each week Captions are submitted by readers, and three are chosen as finalists Readers then vote on the winner, and any resident of the US, UK, Australia, Ireland or Canada except Quebec age 18 or older can vote Each contest winner receives a print of the cartoon with the winning caption, signed by the artist who drew the cartoon


The New Yorker has been the source of a number of movies Both fiction and non-fiction pieces have been adapted for the big screen, including: Flash of Genius 2008, based on a true account of the invention of the intermittent windshield wiper by John Seabrook; Away From Her, adapted from Alice Munro's short story "The Bear Came Over The Mountain", which debuted at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival; The Namesake 2007, similarly based on Jhumpa Lahiri's novel which originated as a short story in the magazine; The Bridge 2006, based on Tad Friend's 2003 non-fiction piece "Jumpers"; Brokeback Mountain 2005, an adaptation of the short story by Annie Proulx which first appeared in the October 13, 1997, issue of The New Yorker; Jonathan Safran Foer's 2001 debut in The New Yorker, which later came to theaters in Liev Schreiber's debut as both screenwriter and director, Everything is Illuminated 2005; Michael Cunningham's The Hours, which appeared in the pages of The New Yorker before becoming the film that garnered the 2002 Best Actress Academy Award for Nicole Kidman; Adaptation 2002, which Charlie Kaufman based on Susan Orlean's The Orchid Thief, written for The New Yorker; Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes, which also appeared, in part, in The New Yorker in 1996 before its film adaptation was released in 1999; The Addams Family 1991 and its sequel, Addams Family Values 1993, both inspired by the work of famed New Yorker cartoonist Charles Addams; Brian De Palma's Casualties of War 1989, which began as a New Yorker article by Daniel Lang; Boys Don't Cry 1999, starring Hilary Swank, began as an article in the magazine, and Iris 2001, about the life of Iris Murdoch and John Bayley, the article written by John Bayley for the New Yorker, before he completed his full memoir, the film starring Judi Dench and Jim Broadbent; The Swimmer 1968, starring Burt Lancaster, based on a John Cheever short story from The New Yorker; In Cold Blood 1967, the widely nominated adaptation of the 1965 non-fiction serial written for The New Yorker by Truman Capote; Pal Joey 1957, based on a series of stories by John O'Hara; Mister 880 1950, starring Edmund Gwenn, based on a story by longtime editor St Clair McKelway; The Secret Life of Walter Mitty 1947 which began as a story by longtime New Yorker contributor James Thurber; and Meet Me in St Louis 1944, adapted from Sally Benson's short stories

The history of The New Yorker has also been portrayed in film: In Mrs Parker and the Vicious Circle, a film about the celebrated Algonquin Round Table starring Jennifer Jason Leigh as Dorothy Parker, Sam Robards portrays founding editor Harold Ross trying to drum up support for his fledgling publication The magazine's former editor, William Shawn, is portrayed in Capote 2005, Infamous 2006 and Hannah Arendt 2012

The 2015 documentary, Very Semi-Serious, produced by Redora Films, presents a behind-the-scenes look at the cartoons of The New Yorker


The New Yorker's signature display typeface, used for its nameplate and headlines and the masthead above The Talk of the Town section, is Irvin, named after its creator, the designer-illustrator Rea Irvin The body text of all articles in The New Yorker is set in Adobe Caslon

One uncommonly formal feature of the magazine's in-house style is the placement of diaeresis marks in words with repeating vowels—such as reëlected, preëminent and coöperate—in which the two vowel letters indicate separate vowel sounds The magazine also continues to use a few spellings that are otherwise little used, such as focussed, venders, teen-ager, traveller, marvellous, carrousel, and cannister

The magazine also spells out the names of numerical amounts, such as "two million three hundred thousand dollars" instead of "$23 million", even for very large figures


Notwithstanding its title, The New Yorker is read nationwide, with 53 percent of its circulation in the top ten US metropolitan areas According to Mediamark Research Inc, the average age of The New Yorker reader in 2009 was 47 compared to 43 in 1980 and 46 in 1990 The average household income of The New Yorker readers in 2009 was $109,877 the average income in 1980 was $62,788 and the average income in 1990 was $70,233

Eustace Tilley

Image of Count d'Orsay, published by James Fraser

The magazine's first cover illustration, a dandy peering at a butterfly through a monocle, was drawn by Rea Irvin, the magazine's first art editor, based on an 1834 caricature of the then Count d'Orsay which appeared as an illustration in the 11th edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica The gentleman on the original cover, now referred to as "Eustace Tilley", is a character created by Corey Ford for The New Yorker The hero of a series entitled "The Making of a Magazine", which began on the inside front cover of the August 8 issue that first summer, Tilley was a younger man than the figure on the original cover His top hat was of a newer style, without the curved brim He wore a morning coat and striped trousers Ford borrowed Eustace Tilley's last name from an aunt—he had always found it vaguely humorous "Eustace" was selected by Ford for euphony

The character has become a kind of mascot for The New Yorker, frequently appearing in its pages and on promotional materials Traditionally, Rea Irvin's original Tilley cover illustration is used every year on the issue closest to the anniversary date of February 21, though on several occasions a newly drawn variation has been substituted


"View of the World" cover

Main article: View of the World from 9th Avenue Saul Steinberg's "View of the World from Ninth Avenue" cover

Saul Steinberg created 85 covers and 642 internal drawings and illustrations for the magazine His most famous work is probably its March 29, 1976 cover, an illustration most often referred to as "View of the World from 9th Avenue", sometimes referred to as "A Parochial New Yorker's View of the World" or "A New Yorker's View of the World", which depicts a map of the world as seen by self-absorbed New Yorkers

The illustration is split in two, with the bottom half of the image showing Manhattan's 9th Avenue, 10th Avenue, and the Hudson River appropriately labeled, and the top half depicting the rest of the world The rest of the United States is the size of the three New York City blocks and is drawn as a square, with a thin brown strip along the Hudson representing "Jersey", the names of five cities Los Angeles; Washington, DC; Las Vegas; Kansas City; and Chicago and three states Texas, Utah, and Nebraska scattered among a few rocks for the United States beyond New Jersey The Pacific Ocean, perhaps half again as wide as the Hudson, separates the United States from three flattened land masses labeled China, Japan and Russia

The illustration—humorously depicting New Yorkers' self-image of their place in the world, or perhaps outsiders' view of New Yorkers' self-image—inspired many similar works, including the poster for the 1984 film Moscow on the Hudson; that movie poster led to a lawsuit, Steinberg v Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc, 663 F Supp 706 SDNY 1987, which held that Columbia Pictures violated the copyright that Steinberg held on his work

The cover was later satirized by Barry Blitt for the cover of The New Yorker on October 6, 2008 The cover featured Sarah Palin looking out of her window seeing only Alaska, with Russia in the far background

The March 21, 2009 cover of The Economist, "How China sees the World", is also an homage to the original image, but depicting the viewpoint from Beijing's Chang'an Avenue instead of Manhattan


Hired by Tina Brown in 1992, Art Spiegelman worked for The New Yorker for ten years but resigned a few months after the September 11 terrorist attacks The cover created by Françoise Mouly and Spiegelman for the September 24, 2001 issue of The New Yorker received wide acclaim and was voted in the top ten of magazine covers of the past 40 years by the American Society of Magazine Editors, which commented:

New Yorker Covers Editor Françoise Mouly repositioned Art Spiegelman's silhouettes, inspired by Ad Reinhardt's black-on-black paintings, so that the North Tower's antenna breaks the "W" of the magazine's logo Spiegelman wanted to see the emptiness, and find the awful/awe-filled image of all that disappeared on 9/11 The silhouetted Twin Towers were printed in a fifth, black ink, on a field of black made up of the standard four color printing inks An overprinted clear varnish helps create the ghost images that linger, insisting on their presence through the blackness

At first glance, the cover appears to be totally black, but upon close examination it reveals the silhouettes of the World Trade Center towers in a slightly darker shade of black In some situations, the ghost images only become visible when the magazine is tilted toward a light source In September 2004, Spiegelman reprised the image on the cover of his book In the Shadow of No Towers, in which he relates his experience of the Twin Towers attack and the psychological after-effects

"New Yorkistan"

Main article: New Yorkistan

In the December 2001 issue the magazine printed a cover by Maira Kalman and Rick Meyerowitz showing a map of New York in which various neighborhoods were labeled with humorous names reminiscent of Middle Eastern and Central Asian place names and referencing the neighborhood's real name or characteristics eg, "Fuhgeddabouditstan", "Botoxia" The cover had some cultural resonance in the wake of September 11, and became a popular print and poster

Controversial covers

Crown Heights in 1993

For the 1993 Valentine's Day issue, the magazine cover by Art Spiegelman depicted a black woman and a Hasidic Jewish man kissing, referencing the Crown Heights riot of 1991 The cover was criticized by both black and Jewish observers Jack Salzman and Cornel West describe the reaction to the cover as the magazine's "first national controversy"

2008 Obama cover satire and controversy

Barry Blitt's cover from the July 21, 2008 issue of The New Yorker

"The Politics of Fear", a cartoon by Barry Blitt featured on the cover of the July 21, 2008 issue, depicts then presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama in the turban and salwar kameez typical of many Muslims, fist bumping with his wife, Michelle, portrayed with an Afro and wearing camouflage trousers with an assault rifle slung over her back They are standing in the Oval Office, with a portrait of Osama Bin Laden hanging on the wall and an American flag burning in the fireplace in the background

Many New Yorker readers saw the image as a lampoon of "The Politics of Fear", as the image was titled Some of Obama's supporters as well as his presumptive Republican opponent, Sen John McCain, accused the magazine of publishing an incendiary cartoon whose irony could be lost on some readers However, editor David Remnick felt the image's obvious excesses rebuffed the concern that it could be misunderstood, even by those unfamiliar with the magazine "The intent of the cover," he said, "is to satirize the vicious and racist attacks and rumors and misconceptions about the Obamas that have been floating around in the blogosphere and are reflected in public opinion polls What we set out to do was to throw all these images together, which are all over the top and to shine a kind of harsh light on them, to satirize them"

In an interview on Larry King Live shortly after the magazine issue began circulating, Obama said, "Well, I know it was The New Yorker's attempt at satire I don't think they were entirely successful with it" But Obama also pointed to his own efforts to debunk the allegations portrayed in The New Yorker cover through a web site his campaign set up: " actually an insult against Muslim-Americans, something that we don't spend a lot of time talking about"

Later that week, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart continued The New Yorker cover's argument about Obama stereotypes with a piece showcasing a montage of clips containing such stereotypes culled from various legitimate news sources The New Yorker Obama cover was later parodied by Stewart and Stephen Colbert on the October 3, 2008, cover of Entertainment Weekly magazine, with Stewart as Obama and Colbert as Michelle, photographed for the magazine in New York City on September 18

New Yorker covers are not always related to the contents of the magazine or are only tangentially so In this case, the article in the July 21, 2008, issue about Obama did not discuss the attacks and rumors but rather Obama's political career The magazine later endorsed Obama for president

This parody was most likely inspired by Fox News host E D Hill's paraphrasing of an anonymous internet comment in asking whether a gesture made by Obama and his wife Michelle was a "terrorist fist jab" Later, Hill's contract was not renewed

2013 Bert and Ernie cover

The New Yorker chose an image of Bert and Ernie by artist Jack Hunter, titled 'Moment of Joy', as the cover of their July 8, 2013 publication which covers the Supreme Court decisions on the Defense of Marriage Act and California Proposition 8 The Sesame Street characters have long been rumored in popular culture and urban legend to be homosexual partners, though Sesame Workshop has repeatedly denied this, saying they are merely "puppets" and have no sexual orientation Reaction was mixed Online magazine Slate criticized the cover, which shows Ernie leaning on Bert's shoulder as they watch a television with the Supreme Court justices on the screen, saying "it's a terrible way to commemorate a major civil-rights victory for gay and lesbian couples" The Huffington Post, meanwhile, said it was "one of most awesome covers of all time"
