Vogue Covers: On Fashion's Front Page
by Robin Derrick
Publisher's Description
Inventive, glamorous, gorgeous—since the beginning Vogue has set the platinum standard for fashion magazines the world over and has become an icon in its own right. Vogue’s covers sum up the superlative visual ideals of the whole magazine. For the first time, this book brings together in one volume nearly a century of covers both illustrated and photographic. Over 200 stunning images have been selected from an archive of more than 1,500. What sets Vogue’s covers apart is that each is so bold, so beautiful, and so emphatically different. They mark the course of history, chart changing fashions and ideas of beauty, and hold up a mirror to the cultural and social revolutions of the 20th century. Since 1916 Vogue’s covers have celebrated the most striking women of our age, captured by the century's leading photographers, the greatest artists, and the most inventive fashion. Brilliant, captivating, and full of life, this is the face of the world’s most influential magazine and the original style bible. Robin Derrick is the former art director of The Face, Italian Elle, Glamour France and Arena magazines. He now juggles his time between his role as creative director at Vogue and his photography commissions. Robin Muir is a writer, curator, and former picture editor of Vogue. They are the coeditors of People in Vogue and Unseen Vogue.
