From modernist wonders to striking Jazz Age delights-a box of 100 postcards, each featuring a different and beautiful vintage cover from Vanity Fair magazine.

In 1913, publisher Condť Nast founded Vanity Fair, a magazine that would celebrate the culture, politics, lifestyles, and humor of the world's "smart set." The magazine discovered or lent invaluable support to such varied names as Dorothy Parker, e. e. cummings, NoŽl Coward, Gertrude Stein, P. G. Wodehouse, Cecil Beaton, Edward Steichen, and Man Ray, and frequently reproduced works by the likes of Matisse and Picasso long before anyone in the mainstream press would dare. Edited by Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, this elegant collection of postcards includes one hundred of these groundbreaking covers, representing more than twenty years of cosmopolitan Jazz Age design in one box.
