Those edgy New Yorker covers!

ImageA Christmas issue of the New Yorker knocked my socks off with its depiction of Pope Francis on his back in a snow drift making a snow angel (see below). Brilliant and funny all at once.

Now I find in my mailbox another wordless pearl  (above) that says so much, tongue in cheek.

What a consistently stimulating mag–and for so many years.

    I look forward to their covers each week! After viewing it, the first thing I do is to look in the Contents section to see what ‘name’ the cover was given. 🙂

  2. I know just what you mean! The guy that “did” the Pope did Putin too (to a tee). He is brilliant, I think. Will find his name to give him proper credit. That’s genius!
