For the last two years I have been enjoying the New Yorker Cover page-a-day calendar. A different New Yorker cover, sometimes from more than 75 years ago, was the highlight of my early morning, along with steamed milk and strong coffee. So I am very very disappointed to learn that there will be no 2017 version of the daily Cover-Calendar. Over the next week or so I’m gong to share some of my favourites beginning with this 34 year old gem by Lonni Sue Johnson. I love watercolour sketches of buildings and this one is particularly charming with the ochre sky and cartoonish cars almost obscured by snow banks. On doing a little research on Lonni Sue, I learned her fascinating story. You can read about her anterograde amnesia here and the restorative power of art.
