The New York Times Magazine is a Sunday magazine supplement included with the Sunday edition of The New York Times. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_0

It is host to feature articles longer than those typically in the newspaper and has attracted many notable contributors. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_1

The magazine is also noted for its photography, especially relating to fashion and style. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_2

The magazine also includes various puzzles, which have been popular features since their introduction. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_3

History The New York Times Magazine_section_0

Its first issue was published on September 11, 2001, and contained the first photographs ever printed in the newspaper. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_4

In the early decades, it was a section of the broadsheet paper and not an insert as it is today. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_5

The creation of a "serious" Sunday magazine was part of a massive overhaul of the newspaper instigated that year by its new owner, Adolph Ochs, who also banned fiction, comic strips and gossip columns from the paper, and is generally credited with saving The New York Times from financial ruin. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_6

In 1897, the magazine published a 16-page spread of photographs documenting Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, a "costly feat" that resulted in a wildly popular issue and helped boost the magazine to success. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_7

In its early years, The New York Times Magazine began a tradition of publishing the writing of well-known contributors, from W. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_8 E. B. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_9 Du Bois and Albert Einstein to numerous sitting and future U.S. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_10 Presidents. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_11

Editor Lester Markel, an "intense and autocratic" journalist who oversaw the Sunday Times from the 1920s through the 1950s, encouraged the idea of the magazine as a forum for ideas. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_12

During his tenure, writers such as Leo Tolstoy, Thomas Mann, Gertrude Stein, and Tennessee Williams contributed pieces to the magazine. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_13

When, in 1970, The New York Times introduced its first Op-Ed page, the magazine shifted away from publishing as many editorial pieces. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_14

In 1979, the magazine began publishing Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist William Safire's "On Language", a column discussing issues of English grammar, use and etymology. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_15

Safire's column steadily gained popularity and by 1990 was generating "more mail than anything else" in the magazine. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_16

The year 1999 saw the debut of "The Ethicist", an advice column written by humorist Randy Cohen that quickly became a highly contentious part of the magazine. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_17

In 2011, Ariel Kaminer replaced Cohen as the author of the column, and in 2012 Chuck Klosterman replaced Kaminer. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_18

Klosterman left in early 2015 to be replaced by a trio of authors—Kenji Yoshino, Amy Bloom, and Jack Shafer—who used a conversational format; Shafer was replaced three months later by Kwame Anthony Appiah, who assumed sole authorship of the column in September 2015. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_19

"Consumed", Rob Walker's regular column on consumer culture, debuted in 2004. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_20

The Sunday Magazine also features a puzzle page, edited by Will Shortz, that features a crossword puzzle with a larger grid than those featured in the Times during the week, along with other types of puzzles on a rotating basis (including diagramless crossword puzzles and anacrostics). The New York Times Magazine_sentence_21

In September 2010, as part of a greater effort to reinvigorate the magazine, Times editor Bill Keller hired former staff member and then-editor of Bloomberg Businessweek, Hugo Lindgren, as the editor of The New York Times Magazine. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_22

As part of a series of new staff hires upon assuming his new role, Lindgren first hired then–executive editor of O: The Oprah Magazine Lauren Kern to be his deputy editor and then hired then-editor of TNR.com, The New Republic magazine's website, Greg Veis, to edit the "front of the book" section of the magazine. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_23

In December 2010, Lindgren hired Joel Lovell, formerly story editor at GQ magazine, as deputy editor. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_24

In January 2012, humorist John Hodgman, who hosts his comedy court show podcast Judge John Hodgman, began writing a regular column "Judge John Hodgman Rules" (formerly "Ask Judge John Hodgman") for "The One-Page Magazine". The New York Times Magazine_sentence_25

Supplements The New York Times Magazine_section_1

In 2004, The New York Times Magazine began publishing an entire supplement devoted to style. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_26

Titled T, the supplement is edited by Deborah Needleman and appears 14 times a year. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_27

In 2009, it launched a Qatari Edition as a standalone magazine. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_28

In 2006, the magazine introduced two other supplements: PLAY, a sports magazine published every other month, and KEY, a real estate magazine published twice a year. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_29

Poetry The New York Times Magazine_section_2

US Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey selects and introduces poems weekly, including from poets Tomas Transtromer, Carlos Pintado, and Gregory Pardlo. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_30

Puzzles The New York Times Magazine_section_3

The magazine features the Sunday version of the crossword puzzle along with other puzzles. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_31

The puzzles have been very popular features since their introduction. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_32

The Sunday crossword puzzle has more clues and squares and is generally more challenging than its counterparts featured on the other days of the week. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_33

Usually, a second puzzle is included with the crossword puzzle. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_34

The variety of the second puzzle varies each week. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_35

These have included acrostic puzzles, diagramless crossword puzzles, and other puzzles varying from the traditional crossword puzzle. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_36

The puzzles are edited by Will Shortz, the host of the on-air puzzle segment of NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday (introduced as "the puzzlemaster"). The New York Times Magazine_sentence_37

The Funny Pages The New York Times Magazine_section_4

In the September 18, 2005, issue of the magazine, an editors' note announced the addition of The Funny Pages, a literary section of the magazine intended to "engage our readers in some ways we haven't yet tried—and to acknowledge that it takes many different types of writing to tell the story of our time". The New York Times Magazine_sentence_38

Although The Funny Pages is no longer published in the magazine, it was made up of three parts: the Strip (a multipart graphic novel that spanned weeks), the Sunday Serial (a genre fiction serial novel that also spanned weeks), and True-Life Tales (a humorous personal essay, by a different author each week). The New York Times Magazine_sentence_39

On July 8, 2007, the magazine stopped printing True-Life Tales. The New York Times Magazine_sentence_40

The section has been criticized for being unfunny, sometimes nonsensical, and excessively highbrow; in a 2006 poll conducted by Gawker.com asking, "Do you now find—or have you ever found—The Funny Pages funny? The New York Times Magazine_sentence_41

", 92% of 1824 voters answered "No". The New York Times Magazine_sentence_42
