Vogue – The magazine and its covers (A short history)

Vogue Magazine, known as Fashion’s Bible is celebrating its past. For its 120th Anniversary, last year the Fashion Magazine with the contribution of Vogue contributor Dodie Kazanijian and international editor Hamish Bowles launched a book – Vogue: The Covers, compiling the magazine’s famous covers through the years. The book begins with the illustrated covers from the magazine’s debut in December 1892 till date, capturing the evolution of fashion, art, photography, culture and even sports. It is very interesting to see how editors used to hire illustrators in the early days to show a new trend or silhouette, which can be either be in art deco, painting, graphics or a sketch.
