The Not Yorker is a collection of declined or late cover submissions to The New Yorker, curated by illustrators who love and admire traditional cover illustration. This is a site for celebrating cover art, and great ideas that didn't make it.

We encourage illustrators to submit their rejected covers here, so that they might have the opportunity to be rejected by us as well.

This site is not officially affiliated with The New Yorker
