Bohemians, bootleggers, flappers, and swells : the best of early Vanity Fair ( Book )
4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 665 libraries worldwide
For the magazine's centenary celebration, an anthology of pieces from the early golden age of Vanity Fair. Editor Graydon Carter introduces these fabulous pieces written between 1913 and 1936, when the magazine published a murderers' row of the world's leading literary lights. It features great writers on great topics, including F. Scott Fitzgerald on what a magazine should be, Clarence Darrow on equality, D.H. Lawrence on women, e.e. cummings on Calvin Coolidge, John Maynard Keynes on the collapse in money value, Thomas Mann on how films move the human heart, Alexander Woollcott on Harpo Marx, Carl Sandburg on Charlie Chaplin, Djuna Barnes on James Joyce, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., on Joan Crawford, and Dorothy Parker on a host of topics ranging from why she hates actresses to why she hasn't married. These essays reflect the rich period of their creation while simultaneously addressing topics that would be recognizable in the magazine today, such as how women should navigate work and home life; our destructive fascination with the entertainment industry and with professional sports; the collapse of public faith in the financial industry; and, as Aldous Huxley asks herein, "What, exactly, is modern?"--

Vanity Fair, the portraits : a century of iconic images by Graydon Carter( Book )
13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 597 libraries worldwide
"From Edward Steichen and Cecil Beaton to Annie Leibovitz and Mario Testino, Vanity Fair Portraits celebrates 95 years of photographic history, with classic images commissioned and published first in the pages of Vanity Fair. These portraits have become the iconic likenesses of the best-known figures from the worlds of art, film, music, sports, business and politics." "Vanity Fair Portraits traces the cultural history of the 20th century and its leading personalities in the pages of a magazine that helped usher in the modern age and which has itself become a benchmark of modern achievement. This book brings together more than 300 photographs from the two incarnations of Vanity Fair and offers an authoritative roster of fame, talent, and glamour. The first era - from 1913 to 1936 - is dominated by figures from the Jazz Age and covers subjects drawn from art, dance, music, film, and world affairs, including luminaries such as Pablo Picasso, Amelia Earhart, Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn. The second era - from the reincarnation of Vanity Fair in 1983 up to the present day - includes Hollywood stars as well as writers, athletes, style icons, and titans of business and politics, with portraits of Robert De Niro, Arthur Miller, Madonna, Margaret Thatcher, and Rupert Murdoch among many others." "Vanity Fair Portraits taps the energy of the magazine that once promised to 'ignite a dinner party at fifty yards' and reveals why its pages have become the culture's grandest showcase for photographic iconography. Published to accompany the 25th anniversary of Vanity Fair as well as a major touring exhibition at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh, 14 June-21 September 2008, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, USA, 26 October 2008-1 March 2009 and the Portrait Gallery Canberra, Australia, 12 June-30 August 2009."--book jacket

Spy : the funny years ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 273 libraries worldwide
"With equal parts nostalgia and snarkiness, this history /anthology celebrates the now legendary satirical magazine during its heyday-aka 1986 to 1991, when founders and partners Andersen (Turn of the Century and host of NPR's Studio 360) and Carter (editor of Vanity Fair) ran the show (the magazine folded as a monthly in 1994). "We were very lucky to catch two waves-the post-'60s ironic mood and the go-go financial mood," observes Andersen, and these pages offer plenty of opportunity to travel back to those heady days of "Separated at Birth-" and "The Spy Guide to Postmodern Everything." Those who wondered what life at Spy was really like will also be rewarded: former deputy editor Kalogerakis (now deputy editor at Travel + Leisure) has collected plenty of stories about minuscule paychecks, ridiculously tight budgets and bacchanalian parties (Andersen and Carter chime in with extensive annotations). Certain to be on the holiday wish lists of aging hipsters. (Nov.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information."
