REA IRVIN: The New Yorker's original art director, Rea Irvin, and his most famous creation, Eustace Tilley. He was The New Yorker's first art editor, but that title barely begins to suggest his importance to the magazine. The look that Irvin gave The New Yorker was so distinctive and so successful that it has survived, in its essentials, for seventy-six years. The clean, all-caps, Art Deco typeface—whose name, naturally, is Irvin—beautifully captured the Jazz Age but long outlived it.
