Overview

Since its first cover on December 17, 1892, Vogue has had people talking. Vogue: The Covers chronicles the extraordinary images that have reflected—and transformed—the world of style for more than 120 years. More than 300 of the most beautiful, provocative, and fashion-forward covers ever produced are highlighted alongside the history and stories behind the covers themselves. Organized in chronological order by decade, Vogue: The Covers begins with the illustrated covers from the magazine’s inception in 1892 and spans the 20th century to the present day, charting the evolution of fashion, art, culture, and photography for the past 120 years. Featuring the work of influential artists—Helmut Newton, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Bruce Weber, Herb Ritts, Steven Meisel, Annie Leibovitz, and Mario Testino—the book is a stunning celebration of the magazine and its unparalleled influence.

Editorial Reviews

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.
