Eustace Tilley, Here

The February 1925 issue of “The New Yorker.”

Around mid-February, every year, The New Yorker, releases its anniversary issue, which is a replica (or a mild variant) of the magazine’s inaugural issue. It features an illustration of a dandy named Eustace Tilley, peering at a butterfly through a monocle.

The price of the magazine, since it debuted on February 21, 1925, has soared by 400 times, up from 15 cents to $5.99 presently.
