The New Yorker covers of our age

The artistic happenings on Google's home page (here marking the anniversary of the great Dizzie Gillespie) have become the digital equivalent of the old New Yorker magazine covers – topical, surprising, marveled at.

How can something so utilitarian (a search engine) be so pleasing to the eye? Pre-historic people carved decorations on their weapons and painted scenes of daily life on earthen pots. Whatever is valued for productive use is a fair canvas for human expression.

Best of all – as noted here before – Google boogies with its logo, not entombs it in rules.
