Great book with very insightful essay by Judith Thurman and touching comments by Avedon made at Vreeland's memorial service. Some of the pictures of Vreeland at work and play are rare and really convey her spirit and love of life.

The fashion spreads edited by Vreeland were also fantastic but the layout of the fashion shoots from the Bazaar years could have been better--I really wanted to read the articles accompanying some of the Bazaar fashion spreads but the print was too small on several. Apart from this minor quibble, I loved this book and strongly recommend it to all Vreeland fans. The quality is excellent and the book conveys the enormous effort made by the author to gather as much of Vreeland's editorial work as possible in one volume. Well done.

Format: Hardcover
Called "the High Priestess of Fashion," Diana Vreeland is remembered for her impact on fashion, her limitless vision and, of course, her comments. In reply to a question, she said, "What do I think about the way most people dress? Most people are not something one thinks about." At another time she noted, "Too much good taste can be boring." If there was one thing Vreeland was not it was boring. We're reminded of that in this one-of-a-kind volume brimming with 350 illustrations - apt tribute to a singular woman.

From Abrams Books: "Diana Vreeland (1903-1989) was an American original whose impact on fashion and style was legendary. Beginning in 1936, when she became a fashion editor at Harper's Bazaar, Vreeland established herself as a controversial visionary with an astonishing ability to invent and discover fashion ideas, designers, personalities, and photographers. She was a memorable writer with a vivid personality and a talent for coining aphorisms. Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel chronicles 50 years of international fashion and Vreeland's rich life. With more than 350 illustrations, including original magazine spreads and many famous photographs, this intensely visual book shows fashion as it was being invented, and how Vreeland shaped American taste through her superb vision."

Vreeland was not only singular but unstoppable as she served as editor-in-chief of Vogue from 1962-70, and advisor to the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute from 1971 - 89.

Those with an interest in fashion will treasure this volume.

During a film festival earlier this year I saw the 'Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel' documentary and was so blown away that I ordered the book as soon as the lights came up.

Diana Vreeland was such a force of life that once you get a little taste you will definitely want to learn more about her life. This book is not only beautiful, but so full of life - just like Diana!

Lisa Immordino Vreeland, the author, also directed the film and I have to say the two go hand in hand. But until the film comes out on DVD I'm glad to have this wonderful coffee table book to hold me over.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Diana Vreeland was a rare event like a comet, a irrepeatable phenomenon, which our master astronomer Lisa Immordino Vreeland explores and defines in this exciting book.

It is an astronomical task to follow on the tail of the infinite world of Diana Vreeland. Yet the author acutely follows her goal to build an energetic vision of this complex and often contradictory woman. The selected images and descriptions create tension and drama as one travels from page to page. The glitter is often contrasted by dark, almost frightening moments.

The velocity of Diana Vreeland's eye is well documented demonstrating how a real comet is always in the future. Her qualities continue to shine with brilliance and fascinate as does this excellent personal portrait of an extraordinary woman. I highly recommend "The Eye has to Travel" by Lisa Immordino Vreeland.

...but not a fascinating book. Kind of boring with pictures of sparse landscapes and that's about it. Who wants to buy my copy?

A great book for the collector of fashion from the mid 20th century I wish there were more p0hotos that haven't been published previously, but perhaps they don't exist. In any case, worth owning for your collection of Diana Vreeland books.

No color photographs. It was purchased as a gift for a friend of mine and we were both disappointed. The book fell apart in her hands when she started leaving through it after the unwrapping. Sheesh.
