Summary
  • Offers the history of "Vanity Fair" by presenting how the magazine displayed American culture in the many decades of its operation, including the Jazz Age, the Depression, the Reagan Years, and the Information Age
  • "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 ... 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."--Publisher's website
  • "Vanity Fair 100 Years tells the story of a century of modern society and culture as seen by a great magazine. ... Graydon Carter compares the Jazz Age magazine to its contemporary counterpart; writers Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger celebrate the incomparable Frank Crowninshield and the birth of the American Vanity Fair; David Friend presents Edward Steichen and the birth of celebrity portraiture; Jim Windolf chronicles the magazine's tempestuous rebirth in 1983; Amy Fine Collins profiles master photographer Annie Leibovitz; and Leibovitz herself writes about her earliest years at V.F."--Jacket
