Lorenzo Mattotti: Covers for the New Yorker
(1000 items available)
Lorenzo Mattotti: Covers for the New Yorker documents twenty years of collaboration between the most highly appreciated and loved Italian illustrator and one of the most influential US magazines. This unprecedented volume collects the 32 covers drawn by Mattotti for The New Yorker, plus numerous unseen preparatory sketches. The aim is to show the creative process behind the design of a prestige magazine cover, backed up by a precious essay by its art director Françoise Mouly, which describes her dialogue with the artist in the course of the latter’s long collaboration with the magazine. In this regard, some of Mattotti’s extraordinary pastels come with short texts recounting backgrounds and anecdotes about their creation.
