    1. Before reading this book I didn't know much about the history of Vogue. I read the magazine,bought a couple of copies,loved many of the editorials but didn't know anything about it's long history.I didn't know about women like Edna Woolman Chase, one of the most influential women behind Vogue, who among many things was the creator of the first charity fashion show. One of the most disturbing , but funny quotes in this entire book is courtesy of her, "We at Vogue don't throw ourselves under subwa [...]

    2. For anyone researching magazine history, fashion photography, or the evolution of 20th century style this is a great starter book. It covers every little detail about the most influential American fashion magazine, Vogue, through illustrative photos and illuminating text that follow the chronolgy of Vogue from its inception to the modern day. I found the early chapters a bit over my head because they deal with American culture that's far removed from my conscious, but the later chapters that dea [...]

    3. This book is just okay. It's HUGE first of all, so I was expecting more of the stunning photography Vogue is known for. Otherwise, what's the point? There were only 3 pages dedicated to Marilyn Monroe's final Vogue shoot, which was disappointing. Frankly, the book was just so incredibly large and lacking in full-page photos that I felt in the end that it wasn't worth the strain of lifting it. I nearly broke my back!

    4. awesome book! i am hooked first paragraph into the introduction. "[This book will pay] homage to the editors, photographers, writers and designers who built Vogue in the past and continue to build it today - the women and men, invisible to the readers but highly visible to the industry, behind each cover and every page".

    5. I never took Vogue too seriously. I chose to be analphabetic reader: all I cared was their visual essays. But after reading its history, it gave a lot of valuable information about fashion journalism, running a succesful magazine and fashion history. I will never look at Vogue in the same way like before

    6. A great narrative of an illustrious journey of the fashion's most authoritative guide. Told through the voice of a visionary owner, Conde Nast, illustrators and photographers unveiling the status of women at a party, at home and at work. Grace Coddington, Richard Avedon, Mario Testino, all leaving their marks

    7. A through history of Vogue from past and present employees. I liked looking at the past magazine covers as it brought back memories of the times I use to buy the magazine. (I still do occasionally). I think it's a great addition to anyones library and/or anyone who enjoyed the magazine.

    8. I read this book over the course of several book store visits, because it around $85! But it is beautiful and my side table stack is longing for it.

    9. I borrowed this book from the library knowing I would enjoy the photography; happily, I discovered the narrative was equally fascinating.

    10. Vogue magazine has been one of my favorites my teens ( it's been that long ago). The photography was lovely and the history was very fascinating.

    11. Didn't read more than the first chapters, because that's what drew my interest. History of Vogue as a publication. Was at one time published twice a month.
