Editorial Reviews

Review

"This October, Rizzoli celebrates Vogue’s literary column titled “Nostalgia” with the release of NOSTALGIA IN VOGUE edited by the magazine’s Eve MacSweeney, with a foreword by Anna Wintour. Written by some of the most influential people from various areas of the arts—Joan Didion, Margaret Atwood, Patti Smith, Edmund White, Karl Lagerfeld, Carly Simon, and others—each essay is accompanied by the photo that inspired it. Writing on themes ranging from fashion to love, thirty-seven well known public figures share coming-of-age stories that reveal how a particular image changed the course of their lives, while others remember old friends and familiar haunts captured on the magazine’s pages." ~Slamxhype

"Evocative, valuable, and all-around very nostalgic, this collector's item is a must for fashion junkies." ~Plastik

If you have been a regular reader of Vogue, you may have found it odd - and at the same time somehow appropriate - to find a Nostalgia column in a magazine featuring the newest fashions. But the newest fashions are particularly intriguing when compared and contrasted with the past.

And that is what thse columns do so well...take images, often iconic, from the past and let authors, photographers, and others write about how a clothing style or a favorite dress or designer affected their lives. Often brilliant and lively, these essays add a deeper perspective to the way fashion impacts us. These are first person essays and readers should relate to many of them.

Ever had a favorite piece of clothing that seemed to sum up the 50s, 60s, 70s or beyond? Have certain classic Vogue photos stuck with you through the years? Then this book should resonate with you.

This very special book definitely belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in the history of fashion, clothing trends, fashion photography, cultural change, and more. Plus it is simply fun to read and a great coffee table book, likely to spark conversations.

This book was a surprise - various folks remember Vogue and it's influence in their work and their lives. Some of it's funny, some of it profound, but it's a great example of how the simplest things can have a life long impact.

Great book for artists. People, faces, poses, and going back in time for some good ideas. Black and white and color photos work to give more depth and design.

We have a teenager interested in fashion photography, specifically, Vogue. She is so excited to have this book for the photography and also the stories and information.
