The New Yorker: Your Eustace, 2012

"Drawn by Rea Irvin in 1925 for the first issue of The New Yorker, Eustace Tilley has appeared—in some shape or form—on the cover of every Anniversary Issue since. In recent years, readers have submitted ingenious riffs on the iconic dandy for the covers contest. For the 87th anniversary, readers were invited to create a book-bag version of Eustace Tilley." To read more about it and to see a slide show of winners go to The New Yorker's website.

These are my submissions. Until next year Eustace!


THE TILLEYS

























POLO EUSTACE TILLEY
























Eustace Tilley is the tactical leader when it comes to Polo. He is an accomplished sportsman as much as a fine intellectual.


LIBRARY LOVER EUSTACE
























Eustace was just a young boy when his father took him to the opening of The New York Public Library. Since then, he has been an avid reader and a loyal Library visitor.
