The New Year’s Baby is an iconic image. The welcoming of a brand new year full of new experiences, adventures, good times and bad. The birth of a new chapter. And no one used the New Year’s Baby better than the legendary periodical, The Saturday Evening Post.
Using illustrations from the famed artist J.C. Leyendecker(who created 322 covers for the Saturday Evening Post), the magazine made statements from celebratory cuteness to ones like the one to the right where the baby is clutching a gun amidst images from World War II.
In honor of yet another new year, here is a sampling of these famous covers right here:
