Book Review: VOGUE, The Covers

When I think Vogue, I think the height of stylish fashion - perfect dresses perfectly staged on perfect models. So when I received Vogue, The Covers from the people at Abrams, it was like getting the best part of over 100 years of Vogue magazine in one shot! Seriously....!



Vogue, The Covers by Dodie Kazanjian is just that - an illustrated photo book of nearly every Vogue cover from 1892 through 2010.  


Covers by famous photogs - Helmut Newton, Bruce Weber, Richard Avedon, Herb Ritts, Annie Leibowitz - they're all here.  Side-by-side it's so easy to see the rise and fall of trends in fashion, style, and photography.  


One of the neatest things is that I actually have some of these very magazines (yes, I admit, I have a few buried in the back of the closet).  




Of course I have the Madonna covers, and the 100th Anniversary issue from 1992 featuring the supermodels in white. Vogue, The Covers has 269 pages with 500 full color photos and illustrations. The $50 book even comes with five frameable prints.



This book is awesome! Get your copy here.

Hi Jen,

It's crazy that I remember that last cover you showed from April 1993 like it was yesterday... I was 6. That's how impactful that image was to me (for whatever reason) when I was a little girl. Gorgeous! I need to get me one of these :-)

I had a poster size print of a gorgeous Vogue cover that my Mum used to have on her wall in the 70's. It's still in her loft somewhere and I keep thinking I really must dig it out again - it was stunning!
