Book Overview

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.Vanity Fair 100 Years:

The book is a stunning artifact that begets staring, less for the words and publishing industry than as an exercise in visual storytelling reflected through the prism of society and celebrity. The best photographers, the best designers, the best illustrators all came together over Vanity Fair's contents, and the book unfolds in page after page of stunningly rendered images, some iconic and some that never even ran. --New York Times Book Review

   Phenomenal
Really a great book -- exactly what a coffee table book should be full-page photos, phenomenal copy, a thorough review and retrospective of its theme. The material of the 20s and 30s is wonderful. If you're over the age of 35 or so, the material from the 1980s through today will be a smile-on-your-face trip through the high points of pop culture that VF helped bring to the world.

   A Perfect gift
This is a wonderful publication. It is not the kind you read and sit cover-to-cover. Rather you find yourself and flip through it leisurely and find amazing articles about what year or person or fad you may be interested in. It holds endless fascination with its wealth of photographic material and accompanying narratives that amuse and inform.

   Review of Vanity Fair 100 years
I absolutely loved the book and some friends in my office loved it as well and are planning to order it for loved ones. My only problem was that the one picture of Elizabeth Taylor was a distorting and the point in the index, which says that ET is on it is Liza Minnelli. Also, nothing on Barbra Streisand. ONe of hhm's most incredible stars of the last 100 years. The pictures are fantastic, Shame. Wonderful! M. Dietrich and M. Garbo.

   Jazz Age Lover
Book lovers dream of fashion. I love the 30's and 40's picture and this book offers a 100 year look at Vanity Fair, which is one of the classic magazines besides Vogue, in my opinion. The perfect gift for jazz lovers.

   Quintessential
In my opinion, this is the quintessential coffee table book. The photos and writing are equally interesting... as you would expect from Vanity Fair and is far better than similar books we purchased.

   Fun Read and a Great Coffee Table Book
So enjoyable to learn about the interesting first editor-in-chief Francis Crowinshield Crownie, followed by page after page of high-quality photos and hundreds of fascinating, well-written articles on the first hundred years. Highly recommended.
