Vanity Fair 100 Years showcases a century of personality and power, art and commerce, crisis and culture. From its inception in 1913, through the Jazz Age and the Depression, to its reincarnation in the Reagan years, to the image-saturated Information Age, Vanity Fair has presented the modern era. Vanity Fair is up in the top ranks with magazines like Vogue and Harpers Bazaar and won’t be going anywhere any time soon.
This book takes a decade-by-decade look at the world as seen by the magazine, stopping to describe the incomparable editor Frank Crowninshield and the birth of the Jazz Age Vanity Fair, the magazine’s controversial rebirth in 1983, and the history of the glamorous Vanity Fair Oscar Party.
With its exhaustive sweep, visual impact, and time-capsule format, Vanity Fair 100 Years is the book everyone will enjoy flipping through.
“The book is a stunning artifact that begets staring, less for the words and publishing industry than as an exercise in visual storytelling reflected through the prism of society and celebrity. The best photographers, the best designers, the best illustrators all came together over Vanity Fair’s contents, and the book unfolds in page after page of stunningly rendered images, some iconic and some that never even ran.” —New York Times
