Vogue colours A to Z
Twenty-six archival magazine covers from 1912 to 1932, by ten celebrated illustrators, take you back to a more playful and whimsical moment of boas, bows, hats and headpieces, fans, pearls and gloves, and even animals. Coloring book fans of all ages can try their hand at the Art Deco patterns and letters from A to Z and the lively drawings of women dressed for the task at hand, whether it is driving their own car, pruning morning glories in the garden, feeding a dragon, steering a gondola, sitting on a crescent moon, perched on a peacock or riding a zebra—side-saddle, of course. At the back, find the covers in their original colors with added insight into the fashion news conveyed in each illustration. Along with luxuriously heavy stock paper and French flaps, there is a stunning six-page gatefold of twenty-one glamorous dresses from the era to color, tear out, and display. Edited by Vogue Culture Editor Valerie Steiker and designed by Deputy Design Director Alberto Orta, the beautiful book is ripe with fashion history and ready for your reimagination.
