There's a big clearance sale going on at The New Yorker Store! Up to 50% Off.
Just so you know: The New Yorker Store isn't a client of mine, but I'm certainly a client of theirs.
I'm thinking that I can take care of quite a few holiday gifts for my friends -- of the literary sort -- with this sale. Tee shirts, Books, even New Yorker Watches, and DVD's are deeply discounted.
I may even grab a Eustace Watch for myself because every day is a whole lot brighter with a little bit of whimsy.
In an age when the iPhone is quickly becoming the dominant mobile timepiece, buck the trend by sporting a classic piece of New Yorker imagery on your wrist.
As The New Yorker’s first art editor, Rea Irvin (1881-1972) created a witty, urbane, and culturally aware style that continues to define the publication to this day, and illustrated 169 covers for the magazine besides. Featured on the face of this watch is Eustace Tilley, the smartly attired dandy created by Irvin for the cover of the very first New Yorker issue (February 21, 1925) and reappearing on the anniversary issue every year since. The watchband is of colorful vinyl, printed with miniature covers from the magazine’s history.
BTW, as a copywriter the Complete New Yorker on hard drive is one of my most valuable resources. It contains every single page of every single New Yorker Magazine ever published and it gives me access to over 80-years of advertising history. It's completely indexed and searchable. It's a treasure.
