David Attie (1920-1982) was a photographer who was known for the technique of creating montages by stacking negatives, and this technique is evident on all four of the Saturday Evening Post covers featuring his work.

Attie grew up in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, New York, and attended Erasmus High School and later Kansas City Art Institute and Cooper Union. While in the army, he painted pin-up girls on the noses of the fighter planes.

Attie worked with Truman Capote on a number of projects, including photos to accompany Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Capote’s essay Brooklyn Heights, and portraits of Capote. Attie’s photos appeared on numerous magazine covers, including VogueTimeNewsweekPlayboy, and Harper’s.
