Book Club

I am a huge fan of those wildly expensive fashion coffee table books.  For Christmas last year I received In Vogue which I had been longing after for months.  It is basically a biography of the fashion bible complete with stunning images, models galore, and one of the most interesting history lessons I have ever received.

A few weeks ago I found Extreme Beauty in Vogue at Anthropologie massively on sale for about $8 with tax.  I was so excited that I pulled it out on the subway ride back to my apartment and promptly finished the whole thing.  The photographs in this book, especially Irving Penn’s were some of the most visually interesting, thought provoking, and beautiful I have ever seen.  Penn was a true genius of the art world and his work in Vogue I believe truly elevated the magazine to what it has become today.
