We’re running this nifty photo collage, which our designer friend Jennifer Hadley (creator of the original Emdashes logo) created last year for a significant milestone, to wish The New Yorker’s editor many happy returns of the day. The image is made up of magazine covers and other images (including a Russian postcard) from Remnick’s birth year, part of the environment of word and image that formed an editor perfectly suited to both a righteous tradition and a challenging new age.

Who could have predicted how the picture of print media would change? Thankfully, we still have great magazines to celebrate, and as always but especially today, the one whose host we toast is The New Yorker.
