“In the end I do respond to my own instincts. Sometimes they’re successful, and obviously sometimes they’re not. But you have to, I think, remain true to what you believe in” – Anna Wintour
It’s weird but I feel since I posted about Iris Apfel I am more in tune with who I am. The hours spent pulling the details for the post together had a therapeutic effect and I feel that I am more comfortable saying what I like and I don’t like and I DO like stationary. Actually I am quite the stationary-aholic!!
These 100 Iconic Vogue Covers cards were something that I picked up in TK Maxx a few weeks ago and I just love them. TK Maxx can be great for picking up stationary and I love finding cute thank you cards as well as finds like this.
What I love about these is that they show the change in fashion and style through the timeless postcards. The postcards feature covers all the way from 1982 to now and feature work from infamous photographers such as Irving Penn, Richard Avedon and Annie Leibovitz, and artist illustrations from the likes of Salvador Dali and Eduardo Benito. I will say that the selection is certainly more in favour of the 1920’s/1930’s but since I love and appreciate that artwork much more than the celebrity covers of modern times I am very happy with them.
What I plan on doing with the cards is sending some of them as impromptu postcards however I think that it will be quite cool in my office to have a frame with 3 images in it and switch out the postcards to keep the inspiration flowing. I am currently redecorating my office so these will be a welcome addition. I am going to attempt to be more minimalist in my design approach.
These 3 postcards are my favourite from the collection and perhaps that shows to my preference for the artwork style covers rather than the covers featuring models or celebrities. I have checked and you can find these on Amazon and Cara Pharmacy, also on a sidenote I now really want the New Yorker Collection!
