Cover Charge

Image

I used to have a vast collection of Vogue Magazine illustrated covers. My mom framed them for me and they hung in my room when I was growing up. Then Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones moved in, and all of my childhood decor was replaced with band pictures and anything Mick.

This cover from 1922 is one of my lost treasures. It’s by an artist named George Wolfe Plank who worked for Vogue from 1911 through 1936. He was so ahead of his time, I mean look at those Chevron stripes and her bow bracelet!  And notice the cost of the magazine is printed on the bottom right corner; one shilling and six pence.

I wish I would have kept all of those illustrations, because to find them now will cost me a fortune. I guess that’s the price I have to pay for giving Jagger the throne. But at the time, “Wild Horses Couldn’t Drag Me Away.”
