Cover Change

JAMA. 1971;215(7):1147. doi:10.1001/jama.1971.03180200069016

When John H. Talbott, MD, introduced the color covers to The Journal, it was an achievement that has met with endless admiration. One of his duties as Editor Emeritus is selection for each issue of an appropriate embellishment of the cover. He and his lady are indefatigable in their worldwide search for fine works of art. The covers are a tribute to their success, amply attested by a continuing stream of letters of praise.

Beginning with this issue, the cover will no longer carry a legend that relates picture to published item. Rather, such relationship along with information about the artist will appear regularly in AMAGRAMS. The change will permit more prominent display of the artist's title for his work, as on the cover of the 1970 Christmas issue.
