The celebration of the art of looking good has always demanded talent, vision, and style, and the artists recruited to fill the pages of Vogue since 1909—when it was taken over by Condé Nast— have possessed these qualities in abundance. Their brilliant drawings chronicle not only fashion but also, with wit and delicacy, the whole comedy of manners that is the international social round.
William Packer, painter, writer, and art critic, collected the best drawings from over seventy years of Vogue for this classic volume,which features work by hundreds of artists, including Edouard Benito, René Bouché, Salvador Dalí, Georges Lepape, Harriet Meserole, Douglas Pollard, and John Ward.
William Packer was art critic at the Financial Times from 1974 to 2004.
