From the Publisher. The complete history of Vogue, revised and updated in celebration of the magazine’s 120th anniversary.

In Vogue is a fascinating look at the history of the world’s most influential fashion magazine, tracing the history, development, and influence of Vogue as it transforms from a late-18th-century social gazette, rises to the forefront of fashion and photography throughout the 20th century, and achieves Vogue’s current status as the most influential arbiter of fashion across all media today. This book is illustrated with hundreds of covers and archival interiors, featuring the work of the 20th and 21st centuries’ most respected artists, illustrators, and photographers, including Edward Steichen, Toni Frissell, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, David Bailey, Helmut Newton, Annie Leibovitz, Mario Testino, Steven Klein, Bruce Weber, and Herb Ritts. Contributions from Vogue insiders—including S. I. Newhouse, Grace Coddington, and Grace Mirabella—as well as an excerpt from Susan Sontag give life to the detailed history of the magazine traced by the authors. Called “indispensable reading,” by the New York Times when first released in 2006, this newly revised edition updates the magazine’s history through 2012 and features highlights of the past five years.
