Nearly every celebrity on this earth, aspires to having a Vanity Fair cover story because no other publication has as much clout and is a confirmation that one has not only arrived but is also a key player.

Vanity Fair 100 Years showcases a century of personality and power, art and commerce, crisis and culture-both highbrow and low. From its inception in 1913, through the Jazz Age and the Depression, to its reincarnation in the boom-boom Reagan years, to the image-saturated Information Age, Vanity Fair has presented the modern era as it has unfolded, using wit, imagination, peerless literary narrative, and bold, ground breaking imagery from the greatest photographers including Richard Avedon and Annie Leibovitz (everyone wants a front cover shot by Anne Leibovitz). The monthly magazine has also showcased the finest artists and illustrators of the day.

Edited by the enigmatic former editor, Graydon Carter, this book takes a decade-by-decade look at the world as seen by the magazine, stopping to describe the incomparable editor Frank Crowninshield – described as one of the most influential figures in New York society at the first half of the 20th Century. Then there’s the Jazz Age Vanity Fair, the magazine's controversial rebirth in 1983, and the history of the glamorous Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

With its exhaustive sweep, visual impact, and time-capsule format, Vanity Fair 100 Years is the only book to have on your coffee table. In fact, brew up a big pot and be prepared to be lost in its pages.
