Background:

The original New Yorker covers shown on this page were published during World War II and date from the late-1930s through the 1940s..

Like many New Yorker covers they present a unique perspective on their subject, oftentimes with a personal touch - the love for family back home during war (August 22, 1942), the humor in everyday military life (July 28, 1945), a soldier seeing his son after returning home from overseas (September 29, 1945) and soldiers adjusting to civilian life after the War (November 3, 1945).

A number of the covers are illustrated by one of the New Yorker's principal artists during its early years of publication - Constantin Alajalov (1900-1987).  Born in Russia, Alajalov immigrated to the United States and became a citizen in 1928.  In addition to illustrating for The New Yorker, his work appeared in The Saturday Evening Post, Fortune and numerous books.
