In an annual tradition for The New Yorker, it held its fourth contest soliciting readers’ takes on Eustace Tilley, the magazine’s mascot. Tilley, the Regency dandy, is the creation of art editor Rea Irvin and has been on the cover of almost every anniversary issue — including this year’s — since his first appearance, on the début issue, in 1925. Twelve winners were chosen from among more than six hundred entries. Book Arts student Timothy Winkler’s Wandering Eye was one of them. Here is a gallery of all the 2011 entries.
