"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

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 20 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?"--

TO COINCIDE WITH THE MAJOR DOCUMENTARY, THE FLAG, FROM CNN FILMS'BASED ON DAVID FRIEND'S MASTERFUL ACCOUNT OF THE ICONIC IMAGE THAT DEFINED AMERICAN RESILIENCE AFTER 9/11 The Flag tells the fascinating and mysterious story behind the iconic image that captivated a nation. Excerpted from his critically acclaimed book Watching the World Change, journalist David Friend, an editor at Vanity Fair, reveals how a chance moment captured on camera'showing three firefighters hoisting a dust-laden Old Glory at Ground Zero on 9/11'inspired a nation during its darkest hour. But equally captivating is the maelstrom that surrounded the photograph in the months and years following its initial publication. Friend brings us behind the scenes of the photograph's life, from its first exposure in a New Jersey newspaper to its instant fame as a rallying point for an embattled people looking for strength and a sense of community. In evenhanded and lucid prose, he describes the attempts to commodify the image, the heartbreaking appeals of families of the fallen to use it for memorial services, and the struggles of the three firemen to live with their unexpected fame. Friend also traces the confounding path of the flag itself, which has been missing for twelve years, from the debris of the fallen towers, to Navy ships bound for the Middle East, to the hands of high-ranking dignitaries, showing how somewhere along the way the original was replaced by one completely different. The Flag'now a CNN Films documentary, by Petra Epperlein and Michael Tucker'is ultimately the tale of a nation desperate for a source of strength and finding one in an image of men pushing forward despite devastation. It's the story of the best of our natures and the worst; of how imagery can guide and beguile us, but also of how an instant caught on film became a symbol of grace in the face of hopelessness and despair
