20 Stunning New Yorker Architecture Covers From 1933 On

Last week The New Yorker rolled out its first redesign since 2000, redoing its 88-year-old typeface, introducing layouts better suited to photos, and refreshing certain columns and sections. To mark the occasion, here's a look back at a handful of the many, many architecture-themed covers—there are 540 for sale as prints through Condé Nast right now—published by the magazine over the decades. Below: the opulent interiors shown in the first half of the 20th century, a 1960s take on Philip Johnson's Glass House, a peek inside Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim Museum, and a 1990 drawing so prescient that it very well may have predicted the future existence of a piano-shaped house in China. Have a look.
