10 Covers of The New Yorker Illustrated by Bob Staake
Bob Staake is a remarkably diverse and multi-talented illustrator based in Chatham, Massachusetts. He has been creating art and illustrations in many forms for almost 40 years, although he is quick to point out that “I refuse to call what I do ‘work.’” Staake’s illustrations have graced the pages of countless magazines, as well as over 60 (!) children’s books, corporate and product work, poster design, and much more. Staake has also created a brilliant series of covers for The New Yorker, most notably the November 2008 “Reflection” cover, which celebrated the first election of Barack Obama as President. Here’s a collection of 10 of our favorite covers of The New Yorker, illustrated by Staake, and art directed by Francoise Mouly.
