A few years ago, I was given one of the most beautiful books I've ever seen, the hugeee book of Vogue Covers... (I like it so much that it's up there in my header)
Packed with the most beautiful illustrations, it includes all the Vogue covers from years & years ago.
The oldest ones are my favourites - they're drawn so perfectly & artistically you can't help but gawp. So here are some for you to all gawp at yourselves (only the best of course)...
Vogue cover in June 1950, this cover was the first fully black & white cover. I adore the impact it creates, simple designs are sometimes best - I am a huge believer in this.
Below is one of my all time favourites, it is beautiful. November 1920.
Next up, February 1929. I like this one as its so elegant & artistic, much like the style of the time which was too, utter delight!
And finally, as I've seen a lot of oriental clothing recently, I found this one from January 1927 inspiring, I can only dream of being this talented.
Of course, if you're feeling really inspired, you can always buy the book all for your very own, it's incredible I assure you.
