The Art of Vogue Covers book expands upon the pages that graced the front of British Vogue between the years 1909-1940. In contrast to today's covers featuring celebrities and fashion icons, the past images worked with detailed ink illustrations.

The chic women depicted in the Art of Vogue Covers were crafted by well-known painters and designers. Helen Dryden, Georges Lepap and George Plank were some of the more noteworthy contributors, although the list proves to be quite long and impressive.

Significant bits of history can be picked up on with a look at the collection. Flapper-esque looks and 25 cent prices hearken back readers to eras past, as do the majestic portraits of women sunbathing, playing music and enjoying English cups of tea.
