1970

Center left: Print‘s political coverage often generate protest letters from readers who strongly objected to what they preceived as New York liberal partisanship sullying their design coverage. By 1970, feminism was a long-overdue fact of American life, but it was still a controversial subject. Andrew P. Kner’s cover, a witty sample of the ultra-romantic “Liberty Leading the People” by Eugène Delacroix, represented the story “Women’s Lib and Women Designers.” The piece noted that, even then, women’s salaries were than men’s. Surprise?

Rick Meyerowitz (born 1943) was best known for his National Lampoon cover of “Mona Gorilla,'” a parody of the famous Mona Lisa. His cover comically showed the dangers of the freelance life. Inside, his caricatures were showcased in “Utter Madness” by Valerie F. Brooks, who wrote that Meyerowitz’s “delight at being a cartoonist is equaled only by his amazement at his own abilities … and output.”
