Vintage Baby Notes

The Gift Book of the season--
celebrates 120 years of fabulous Vogue covers

Vogue covers have been so distinctive, setting the tone for fashion magazines for over 120 years. Beginning with its first issue in 1892, Vogue has had people talking. This lavish, fantastic, oversized book, VOGUE: The Covers, chronicles the extraordinary images that have reflected and transformed the world of fashion, art and culture for generations. Organized in chronological order by decade (covering 1892 to the present), this book showcases more than 300 of the most beautiful, provocative, and fashion-forward covers ever produced, along with the history and stories behind the covers themselves.

Of special note to fans of Art Deco are the chapters on the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, showing not only the fashions of the day, but also the sublime illustration styles of that period. (We must admit that there are several covers we had never seen before.)

In the decades that followed, covers were photographed by the leading artists of the day, from Irving Penn and Richard Avedon to Steven Meisel and Annie Leibovitz. With an introduction and historic overview by Vogue veteran Dodie Kazanjian and a forward by Hamish Bowles. Whether for you or for a good friend, this is the Gift Book of the Season. HC, 9” X 12,” 272 pages, over 500 color illustrations.

Also included are 5 classic cover posters, suitable for framing.
