New York Heritage has hundreds and hundreds of digitized yearbooks, which you can see and browse or search by school on our Yearbooks page.
Recently we’ve pinned nearly 100 of our favorite yearbook designs over on Pinterest. You can see the board here:Yearbooks Over the Years.
My only disappointment with Pinterest is that you can’t rearrange your pins. I’d really love to sort these great yearbook covers by date to see the different design trends over the years, so I thought I’d do it here!
So what did our favorite yearbook covers look like…
In the conservative 20s?
In the classic 30s?
In the adventurous 40s?
In the angular 50s?
In the shapely 60s?
In the psychedelic 70s?
In the futuristic 80s?
In the graphic 90s?
In the modern age?
One thing’s for certain- your yearbook cover shouldn’t be boring! Check out the rest of our favorites on Pinterest and tell us what design speaks to you.
