Just a parade of endless flappers...the first and third might be my favorites...although I love how modern the last covers feels. Why choose a favorite? I like them all.

  1. I love these! I'm currently studying fashion illustration at F.I.T and we're doing a project where we illustrate a fictional vogue cover. Definitely inspired by these! John Held Jr. was amazing.

  2. Glad you're inspired by them, too and good luck with your own illustration work!
