With a name like THE LITERARY DIGEST you'd think it was a magazine of book news and reviews, but even in its earlier days it carried news and analysis and opinion articles. Over time it became more like a weekly newsmagazine. At first it presented a cover consisting only of a list of articles and other contents. In the early 1900's it began using painted and drawn covers on a regular basis, though at first it worked with only a few different designs, using them in rotation or for a few weeks. By the 'teens it was giving the reader a new color cover (more or less illustrating some current news) with each issue. By the 1920's it had changed intent again, now running full-color reproductions of famous, or at least comforting, paintings. In its last years it experimented with a variety of photographic and photomontage techniques.
