The Neu Jorker
By James Folta and Andrew Lipstein
An hommage d'triomphe, a “send-up” of New York's most stimulating, mid-to-high-brow magazine. The Neu Jorker is a digital-only download and free to the public.
A comprehensive and ambitious parody, The Neu Jorker spoofs The New Yorker magazine thoughtfully and pitch-perfectly. The magazine was crafted by Andrew Lipstein and James Folta, who teamed up with a lot of talented writers and illustrators to construct a cover-to-cover replica of an issue of The New Yorker including artwork, mock advertisements, fonts, even the fine print.
Contributors' credits include The Onion, ClickHole, The New Yorker, the Late Show with David Letterman, the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, McSweeney's, the Upright Citizens Brigade & more.
