The Colors of Summer

June 4th, 2012

Living in New York, you can hardly ignore The New York Times and The New Yorker. I find both publications to be really enjoyable, not to mention illustratively informative and telling of the trends. A few weeks ago I pinned an Olimpia Zagnoli illustration from The New Yorker’s literary section. The simplicity in line, color and shape is reminiscent of patterns I personally enjoy. Fast forward to this past weekend, and The New York Time’s Book Review had an awfully similar layout. At first I wondered if it was an oversight, or perhaps a form of flattery, but after a little research, it looks like Zagnoli’s the artist behind both illustrations, proving this aesthetic and palette will be a summer literary mainstay.
