“The best cover is always the next one, the one you haven’t seen yet,” says Anna Wintour but that doesn’t mean Vogue hasn’t cranked out countless ground breaking covers in its 120 year history. Fashionophiles can add a new book from Conde Nast to their Christmas wishlist, that gives fan a decade by decade account of the most provocative covers.
The book, available for purchase on Amazon.com contains more than 300 of the stunning images by some of the titans of photography starting in 1892. Discover the evolution of style with beautiful photographs by artists such as Irving Penn, Annie Leibovitz, Mario Testino, Steven Meisel, Richard Avedon, Herb Ritts, and Bruce Weber, along with the stories behind those iconic shots.
Vogue: The Covers (Abrams), by Dodie Kazanjian, with a foreword by Hamish Bowles; $31.50.
