Cover Story: The Evolution Of Eustace Tilley

To commemorate its 95th anniversary issue, The New Yorker had artist Barry Blitt transform its trademark monocled cover boy Eustace Tilley into an ape.

"Tilley" has been featured -- in some form -- on every cover of the venerable magazine's anniversary issue nearly every February.
