puzzle this: 5 classic covers

Launched in 1913, Vanity Fair would go on that celebrated the culture of “the smart set.” Its Jazz Age issues bore dazzling covers from the most influential illustrators of the day, including William Bolin, A. H. Fish, to become the sophisticated, witty magazine John Held Jr., and Frank X. Leyendecker. Now five of those classic covers have been re-created as elegant puzzles, evoking a charmed era—gone, but not forgotten.

CHRIS GARRETT Early in her career Chris Garrett was managing editor of Condé Nast’s Tatler magazine, in London, and twice came to New York as a guest editor at V.F. After moving to New York, she became a talent scout for Condé Nast but was not long in the role when, one morning in 1992, she was asked to meet with Condé Nast chairman S. I. Newhouse, Jr., who had just hired Graydon Carter to be editor of V.F. Si was hugely knowledgeable about movies, and, laughing, he observed, “This is like the scene from The Spy Who Came In from the Cold, where Cyril Cusack tells Richard Burton that it is time for him to come in from the cold.” He added, “We need you on Vanity Fair. Graydon should…

A few months ago a loopy meme that careened around the dark regions of the Internet speculated that a photograph taken on the South Lawn of the White House proves that Melania Trump had been replaced by a body double. (If only it had been referring to her husband.) This conspiracy theory, like so many, was, of course, nuts. We actually do have a real First Lady. She’s the one who has adopted her own version of “blue steel”: that steely, slit-eyed, purse-lipped set of the face. You may have noticed that her husband has also appropriated the look, in order, no doubt, to show that he is a man of parts. Trump didn’t have that look when he was younger, and I suspect that he was inspired by watching…

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT Since Carrie Coon’s Tony-nominated Broadway breakthrough, five years ago, as Honey in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, the Ohio-bred actress has anchored two prestige television dramas, playing nononsense police chief Gloria Burgle on the latest iteration of FX’s Fargo, and wrenching hearts as Nora Durst, a grief-hardened mother, on HBO’s dystopian epic The Leftovers. Given her bravura performances—Fargo netted her an Emmy nomination this year, in the same category as Nicole Kidman and Jessica Lange—it is not surprising that she was recruited by Steven Spielberg to co-star opposite Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post, the upcoming film about The Washington Post’s role in exposing the classified Pentagon Papers, in 1971. (Coon plays reporter Meg Greenfield, with Streep as publisher Kay Graham and Hanks as…
