First Issue of Vogue

Founded in 1892, by American business man, Arthur Turnure, Vogue started out a as a weekly newspaper in the US.  The first issue was published today and sold for 10 cents.

The publication was targeted to the wealthy of New York and covered everything from fashion through to sports and leisure activities and a who’s who of social gatherings.

Some of the old covers are amazing pieces of art in their own right and whilst no one would knock the benefits of photography I can’t help but think that we’re lost something….
