This elegant volume collects a wonderful selection of Vogue's famous "Nostalgia" columns and the stunning photographs that accompanied them. Writers, designers, models, and celebrities share coming-of-age stories based on a rich range of themes from fashion to art, Hollywood, music, childhood, work, and love, each triggered by an extraordinary photograph from Vogue's history. With a host of intriguing characters and stories, and images by legendary photographers such as Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Henry Clarke, Helmut Newton, Horst P. Horst, and Henri Cartier-Bresson, "Nostalgia in Vogue" is both a visual treat and a fascinating read. Whether told from the point of view of a budding movie star or a teenager straining to make sense of the sophisticated adult world, each entry offers a unique slice of life sharply evocative of time and place. "Nostalgia in Vogue" is a must for devotees of fashion, pop culture, photography, and literary memoir and reaches across a readership of all ages.

Review quote

"This October, Rizzoli celebrates Vogue's literary column titled "Nostalgia" with the release of "NOSTALGIA IN VOGUE" edited by the magazine's Eve MacSweeney, with a foreword by Anna Wintour. Written by some of the most influential people from various areas of the arts--Joan Didion, Margaret Atwood, Patti Smith, Edmund White, Karl Lagerfeld, Carly Simon, and others--each essay is accompanied by the photo that inspired it. Writing on themes ranging from fashion to love, thirty-seven well known public figures share coming-of-age stories that reveal how a particular image changed the course of their lives, while others remember old friends and familiar haunts captured on the magazine's pages." Slamxhype"Evocative, valuable, and all-around very nostalgic, this collector's item is a must for fashion junkies." "Plastik"
