Overview

In Vogue is a fascinating look at the history of the world's most influential magazine. The complete compendium is illustrated with hundreds of covers and archival interiors of past Vogue editions, featuring the work of some of the twentieth century's most respected artists, cover illustrators, and photographers—from Edward Steichen, Toni Frissell, and Erwin Blumenfeld to Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, David Bailey, Helmut Newton, Annie Leibovitz, Mario Testino, Steven Klein, Bruce Webber, and Herb Ritts. In 1909, an entrepreneurial New Yorker named Condé Nast took charge of a struggling society journal and transformed it into the most glamorous fashion magazine of the twentieth century. In Vogue traces the history, development and influence of this media colossus—from its beginning as a social gazette in the late nineteenth century, to the exploration of modern fashion photography and new visuals in the mid-twentieth century, to its status as the top style magazine today. The book explains the makings of the magazine—from runways, to editorial meetings, to the pages of Vogue.The thoroughly researched story incorporates first-person accounts, interviews with editors and photographers, and excerpts from stories written in the magazine by many world-renowned writers, including Truman Capote, Aldous Huxley, Richard Burton, Federico Fellini, and Marcello Mastroianni. Unparalleled in its scope and exceptionally illustrated, In Vogue is sure to be among the most important publications on the subjects of culture, art, fashion, photography, and media.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The intriguing history of Vogue unfolds in a stylish, sumptuous retrospective that includes interviews, as well as photo spreads and excerpts from the best articles and stories that have appeared within the pages of the iconic magazine.
Publishers Weekly
From the illustrated covers of Vogue's founding in 1892 to the advent of color photography in the 1930s and today's postmodern world, this thick volume is as elegant and engrossing as the magazine. An essay by Susan Sontag on the social implications of fashion photography enhances profiles of Irving Penn, Helmut Newton, Annie Leibowitz and other image-makers, along with the models, athletes and powerful women who have graced the magazine's pages. Behind-the- scenes anecdotes and proofs that did-and didn't- make the cut offer an intimate look at how the magazine assembles its public face. (Sept. 22) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
The title of this book says it all, even while its authors say little (much like the magazine, the story of In Vogue is mostly in the pictures). Fortunately, this elegant, self-congratulatory book is a sumptuous celebration of fashion from its highest and most successful arbiter in American periodicals. It is hard to deny the iconic status of Vogue or its exceptional prowess through the decades in defining a particular level of style, aided by a team of talented illustrators, photographers, models, writers, editors, and celebrities. If Lauren Weisberger's best-selling The Devil Wears Prada skewers the demanding perfectionism of a famous fashion magazine's editor, In Vogue provides the other side of the story. Outlining the inspiration, artistic sensibility, and sharp editorial skill that consumes every layout, it can be hyperbolic in its insistence on the importance of fashion. But hemlines can relate to headlines, and the fashion magazine has been a barometer of culture throughout its history. An essential fall accessory for the coffee tables of Vogue and fashion aficionados everywhere.-Prudence Peiffer, Cambridge, MA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
