Happy Valentine's Day from The New Yorker

Happy Valentine's Day from The New Yorker

A beautifully-designed Valentine's Day cover used to be an annual event for many magazines. Today, with the exception of an occasional women's service mag, Valentine's Day has almost disappeared from the newsstands. Thank goodness for The New Yorker, which has done brilliantly illustrated Valentine's Day covers for over 70 years. This year, because of their publishing schedule, The New Yorker skipped Valentine's Day and did their annual Eustace Tilley readers' submssion cover. We missed their Valentine's cover, so we collected 19 of their greatest here to warm your hearts and the hearts of your loved ones.

Thanks to Linda Rubes for her help in compiling this collection.
