This month’s cover features a montage of past issues commemorating the final print edition of C&RL News. From the top left, the cover includes the January 1967 issue, the September 1975 issue, and the May 1 issue, featuring an image by rubber-stamp mail artist Jennifer Henderson, wife of then-editor George Eberhart. The July/August 1990 issue, showing the Philosophical Hall in Strahov Monastery library in Prague, is another of Eberhart’s selected covers. Former editor Mary Ellen K. Davis selected the March 1992 issue, featuring an image by Leo LimÓn from the California Ethnic and Multicultural Archives, and the December 1995 issue, with a 1916 fashion illustration by artist Gordon Conway, as two of her favorite covers. The June 2002 issue, with a watercolor illustration by Olga Bajusova, and the July/August 2005 issue, showing the “Listen to me” chaise lounge designed by Edward Wormly for the Dunbar Furniture Company in 1948, were chosen by past-editor Stephanie Orphan. The montage ends in the bottom left with Mother and child, De Fremery Park, Oakland, California, photographed by artist Ruth-Marion Baruch, from the February 2019 issue.
