Independence Day

For the Fourth of July I have a series covers from The New Yorker. The first is from cartoonist George Booth. A dog, the flags, the fourth of July. Perfect.

From 1956, the cover is by Edna Eickle.  America at home.  A boy and a flag.
 1966' s cover is by Arthur Gets.  Just a flag on a house. Pretty much says it all.
Arthur Getz also did the cover in 1981. Main Street USA. A wonderful view of our Independence Day.
In  1988 Lee Lorenz drew an optimistic, happy Uncle Sam.
For 2007 the ever charismatic Lady Liberty standing strong by Bob Staake. 
Have a great Fourth of July. Enjoy and appreciate our independence.
