Vanity Fair 100 Years showcases a century of personality and
power, art and commerce, crisis and culture—both highbrow and low. From
its inception in 1913, through the Jazz Age and the Depression, to its
reincarnation in the boom-boom Reagan years, to the image-saturated
Information Age, Vanity Fair has presented the modern era as it
has unfolded, using wit, imagination, peerless literary narrative, and
bold, groundbreaking imagery from the greatest photographers, artists,
and illustrators of the day. This sumptuous book takes a
decade-by-decade look at the world as seen by the magazine, stopping to
describe the incomparable editor Frank Crowninshield and the birth of
the Jazz Age Vanity Fair, the magazine’s controversial rebirth in 1983, and the history of the glamorous Vanity Fair Oscar Party.
With its exhaustive sweep, visual impact, and time-capsule format, Vanity Fair 100 Years is the book everyone will want in 2013.
