This 256 page publication showcases a fascinating period in Vogue’s history when its editor, Jessica Daves, brought a new approach of ‘high/low’ fashion to the iconic magazine. In every issue an interesting array of world-renowned artists, literary greats, and cultural icons was also introduced to its readership.
Measuring 365mm x 280mm, the book’s large format allowed us to bring together a wealth of content types – from photographs and illustrations, to page spreads from the Vogue archives, as well as a range of other historic materials and correspondence.
Divided into 8 chapters, we employed a colour palette of fifties-inspired pastels to distinguish sections from one another and to bring variety to the reader.
The heading typeface is Granville by Production Type which is a contemporary version of a modulated sans serif. With a visible contrast between thick and thin strokes, these typefaces were commonly employed in signage and advertising during the mid-20th century before modernism took hold. The body text is set in Jenevers, a modern serif face by TypeType.
The soft cover publication is housed in a slipcase to create an elegant object in keeping with the content within.
