Vanity Fair 100 Years (Kobo eBook)
“Page after page of stunningly rendered images. . . . go to the party that is Vanity Fair. This time, we’re all invited.” —The New York Times
In words, photography, and illustrations, this book spans a century of personality and power, art and commerce, current events, crises, and culture both highbrow and low, as chronicled in the magazine Vanity Fair.
From its inception in 1913, through the Jazz Age and the Depression, to its reincarnation in the boom-boom Reagan years, to the image-saturated Information Age, Vanity Fair has presented the modern era as it unfolded, using wit, imagination, peerless literary narrative, and bold, groundbreaking imagery from the greatest photographers, artists, and illustrators of the day. This sumptuous book takes a decade-by-decade look at the world as seen by the magazine, with stops 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.
