New York Review 60th Anniversary Tote Bag
Celebrate with us!
This 100% cotton tote bag marks 60 years of The New York Review of Books with an original drawing of the facade of our new building. Previously the studio of Milton Glaser and the offices where New York and Ms. magazines were founded, this Beaux Arts townhouse is now the home of the Review, which published its first issue in 1963. If you look carefully on the bag, you can see the line Milton had engraved in the transom above the front door: Art is Work.
This commemorative one-of-a-kind tote bag has been illustrated by celebrated artist Jim McMullan, who worked in the building and is well known for his iconic posters for Broadway plays. James McMullan has created images for magazine stories, books for adults and children, record covers, US stamps, murals and animated films, but he is most well known for the over eighty posters he has done for Lincoln Center Theater. Among the most recognized of these posters are Anything Goes, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I, and My Fair Lady. A standout in McMullan’s work for magazines is the group of journalistic illustrations of a Brooklyn Disco that he painted for New York Magazine that became the visual inspiration for the movie Saturday Night Fever.
The sturdy limited-edition tote is a perfect fit for all your daily needs, including the most recent issue of the Review.
