A highly scarce prototype dummy of a Village Voice fashion supplement intended to be issued ten times a year but in fact running just five times the following year, with a slight modification of the title to "Vue". By scarcity, we mean there are only two copies currently residing in institutional libraries (the Met, NYU). Folio, 37 by 27.5 cm. 30 pp., plus wraps, with many photos, photo-montages, and the like, and a good amount of color. A photo spread by Nan Goldin is surely a high point of this preview, and with its pregnant women prancing around without a thought to personal vanity, captures the gritty, edgy essence that suffuses this offbeat publication. This was meant to conjure up a counter-culture, rebellious, underground and/or ironic spirit and approach to fashion that started around this time to crop up in the mainstream publications such as "Vogue" but here is the entire game. This is what one might expect of "The Village Voice" as it conjures up its original slant on things. The magazine is as much a comment on fashion and fashion coverage as it is a sales vehicle for fashion, we might add. Other aspects that stand out are the arresting cover, and a spread on dogs and human legs -- looking at the world through canine eyes. Bookseller Inventory #
