Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Vogue first hit newsstands in late 1892 as a weekly, but it wasn't until Condé Nast purchased it nearly two decades later that the publication became newsworthy itself. In the century since, the magazine, now a monthly, was become a major fashion trendsetter and arbiter, and winning a place on its cover is perhaps the most coveted prize for celebrities, models, and photographers. Vogue: The Covers showcases more than 300 of the most iconic, striking, and stylish covers from the magazine's eleven decades. Featured in this diverse selection are pictures by artists including Irving Penn, Annie Leibovitz, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Steven Meisel, and Bruce Weber. A majestic tribute to one of the most influential magazines in our history.
