Great fashions and interesting to view covers up to 2006
My previous book which I treasure was double the size but only went up to the 1940's. The content of this was just what I was looking or as it went up to just short of the present day but was very disappointed with the choice of front cover. Apart from that I found the content well photographed and displayed and a must for all those who are interested and inspired by fashions throughout the age of Vogue. I love it !

if you appreciate VOGUES and their talent at creating great covers, then this allows you to have an extensive look from the very beginning to now, there is a small anecdote for each page to read. The early covers were more like illustrations and art. Then came the models, the real ones. So many different ways of framing a face one might say, and that's when one realises the importance of editors and art directors. It is also great fun to see the evolution of beauty and its standards, the difference in make up, fashion, postures and what is sexy. I myself got this book as i collect VOGUES (UK) from the mid 1980's to now, as i adore the supermodels of the 1990s era. VOGUE was a major factor for these girls success, so was HARPER'S BAZAAR. HARPER'S should come up with a book like this. This book has something for everyone, as long as you all appreciate images of women, all symbols of their own era. there is at least 10 KATE MOSS covers featured here, and plenty of the 1990's supermodels. it will sadly show that VOGUE has begun to lose some of that VOGUE touch, due to their recent tendency to feature too often now, actresses and singers, insead of sticking to cover models who know best. Still, nicely chunky, glossy and very well laid -out book. great cover of course.Read full review
