Unlike many of the magazines in this week’s Illustration Age series, The New Yorker doesn’t need much of an introduction. As the magazine’s first creative director, Wyatt Mitchell has helped usher in a fresh look for both its design and imagery. There are three visual editors at The New Yorker: Francoise Mouly art directs the covers, Robert Mankoff edits the cartoons, and Chris Curry oversees the interior illustrations. Illustration editor Chris Curry recently celebrated her 25th anniversary at The New Yorker. In that time she has art directed well over 10,000 illustrations, and built the magazine’s reputation as the premier showcase for editorial art. From the small front-of-book images to large, lush, full-pages, the illustrations in The New Yorker are a constant delight. What’s so impressive about these illustrations is 1) there are a lot of them, 2) they’re so well-crafted, 3) they are constantly finding new talent , 4) they use known and unknown illustrators from around the world, and 5) they do it every week! All of the illustrations in today’s collection from The New Yorker were art directed by Chris Curry (with Wyatt Mitchell, creative director). The images were pulled from a variety of issues published over the past year. Special thanks to Taylor Givens at The New Yorker for helping to organize images and credits.
