Fashion is but one of the subjects covered. As Vogue editor-in-chief Jessica Daves writes in her introduction to this book, Vogue speaks to a reading audience “moved by hunger, love, and fear; to seek amusement; to feel envy, desire, curiosity, and [possess] an avid interest in the new,” in art, fashion, philosophy, music, society, etc.

A wonderful gift!
