Vintage Vogue Covers

I have acquired a copy of this book, so thought I'd do some sharing.

The Art of Vogue Covers 1909-1940 by William Packer. It is branded with St. Michael and was sold in 1984, but originally published in 1980. Its about 255 pages long, mainly full of prints.

I have decided to take some photos of the ones that stand out for me, but I'll come back often as this could go on a while!

I took some today, until my camera batteries ran out!

Vogue was first published in 1909. It seemed to have started as a weekly publication, but it soon became bi-monthly, which it stayed until the 1970s. Photos (were used on a few covers I believe in 1909, but only came again in 1932.
