One of the world’s leading fashion magazines, W will celebrate its 40th anniversary with this volume—a collection of the most influential and iconic features and photos culled from its first four decades. W is renowned for its groundbreaking, provocative, often controversial fashion stories by such photographers as Steven Klein, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Bruce Weber, Mario Sorrenti, Tim Walker, Juergen Teller, and Paolo Roversi, among many others, the best of which fill these pages. Divided into three sections—Who, Where, and Wow—this volume shows why W’s unique blend of unparalleled access, cultural smarts, and visual panache has always kept it at the forefront of not only the world of fashion, but also in art, design, style, beauty, celebrity, and society. Appearing in these pages are many of the world’s most talented, beautiful, and accomplished from a vast array of fields, including Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Madonna, Damien Hirst, Alexander McQueen, Daphne Guinness, Beyoncé, Karl Lagerfeld, Kate Moss, the Beckhams, Tilda Swinton, and Jackie Kennedy. In addition to a foreword by the book’s editor, Stefano Tonchi, W: The First 40 Years also includes newly commissioned essays from writers Lynn Hirschberg, Marian McEvoy, and Vince Aletti. Longtime W contributor Christopher Bagley has edited the text and written revealing captions that draw upon the magazine’s most memorable interviews and reporting.

Praise for W:
W: The First 40 Years (Abrams, $75) recounts how the publication captures both the high and low sides of society, from Kate Moss and Kim Kardashian, to layouts on the lavish homes of Ann and Gordon Getty and Karl Lagerfeld. With the future of printed magazines far from certain, it’s fun to look back at an era when 58-page spreads of Madonna were not only permitted but indulged.” —The Denver Post

Book Description Abrams, United States, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. W Magazine (W stands for World of Style) will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2012 with a book featuring the most fabulous high points over the last 40 years. W is an award-winning publication, one of the world's greatest and best-known fashion magazines. It was founded in 1971 as a sister publication to Women's Wear Daily and was owned by Fairchild Publications until it was purchased by Conde Nast in 1999. Its long-time creative director Dennis Freedman and editorial director Patrick McCarthy left the magazine in 2010 and were replaced by Stefano Tonchi, who is now its editor in chief. Often the subject of controversy, W magazine is renowned for its provocative, influential and often groundbreaking fashion features by such photographers as Steven Klein, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Steven Meisel, Tim Walker, Craig McDean and Juergen Teller. W is the only fashion magazine that will dare to devote an entire magazine to one feature narrative by one photographer (such as Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt or Madonna, both by Steven Klein). W covers not only fashion & beauty, but everything style, design, celebrity and artistic related in not only American and European culture and society, but throughout the world. The book will be divided into three sections; Who, Where, and Wow, with a foreword by Stefano Tonchi and introductory essays to each of the three sections, one of which will be written by magazine contributor Lynn Hirschberg.
