We took the occasion of our 200th anniversary to think about how our covers have reflected the last two centuries of our nation. The most “American” illustrations are often not those filled with outward signs of pomp and patriotism, but rather the quieter moments found between a father and son, a tough decision at the voting booth, or a walk through a wheat field. We’ve been around for 200 years of this great experiment, and we hope we get to stick around to witness and record the next 200. We don’t have any idea what’s in store next, or what we’ll become as a nation, but if the pages of the magazine have taught us anything, it’s that we’ll have to find our way together.
