Blast From British Vogue’s Past

Wow, my entry about Kate Moss’ cover for British Vogue brought an influx of interesting emails. Thought I’d share this note from my reader John F., who also sent me photos of his favourite covers.

Hi Bryan.

I agree with your comments about British Vogue. I’ve been writing to them for about 2 years now asking for them to raise the bar on their creative side particularly with the covers. I believe British Vogue was at it’s best in the late eighties and early nineties when Liz Tilberis was at the helm. Why to they always opt for the pretty celebrity blonde with the crowded hot pink or red typography? Some of my fave covers attached..

Love your blog
John

Out of his personal selection, I love this.

Those were the days eh?

Reminiscing the past from time to time is great but it’s all about moving forward.
