About this Item: Random House, E-21, 1953. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 4to. Cowles Magazines, Inc. 1952. 229 pgs. Illustrated with Color / Black and White Plates. Bound in decorated cloth boards. No ownership marks present. Text is clean and free of marks, binding tight and solid, boards lightly rubbed and worn. Cowles founded Flair magazine in 1950, and it folded a year later. The magazine, which Time described at its launch as "a fancy bouillabaisse of Vogue, Town & Country, Holiday, etc. ," was celebrated not only because of its design and editorial production by European art director Federico Pallavicini (né Federico von Berzeviczy-Pallavicini) but also because of its lavish production. It was the resulting cost of production that killed the magazine, since the expensive special costs (for cover cut-outs for some issues, for example) could not be supported in the long run. This magazine is now sought after by collectors and sells for significant amounts on eBay. Contributors included Saul Steinberg, Salvador Dalí (The Gypsy Angels Of Spain) , and many writers and artists who subsequently became well known. The first issue featured Auden, Cocteau, Lucian Freud, Tennessee Williams, Angus Wilson, and many others as contributors. E-21; 9.13 X 6.57 X 1.11 inches; 229 pages. Seller Inventory # 52491

About this Item: Cowles Magazines Inc., New York, 1952. Hard Cover. Condition: Good-plus. Fleur Cowles is best remembered as the founder and editor of the gorgeous magazine named Flair, a publication so beautiful and unique that the cost of producing it drove it off the newstands. Flair remains popular today despite its short life. After the magzine was canceled Cowles created this hardcover annual with many of the same charming touches readers loved. Here we have big fold-outs, a cut-out front cover, and an exquisite little booklet bound-in titled "The Flower of Flowers" by none other than the celebrated author Katherine Ann Porter. Among the topics here are Walter Winchell,caligrapay, Valentines, travel to London, artists and much more. Illustrated lavishly with both color art and black and white photographs. Book is oversized at 10"x13-1/3" and has 227 pages. Though not perfect, it's still clean and tightly bound. Faults are confined to a small tear to cloth at front spine which I successfully repaired (almost invisible). a bit of toning to exerior page edges and a few spots of darkening to isolated areas of gilt decoration. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Seller Inventory # 27612

About this Item: Cowles Magazines, [NY:], 1952. First Edition. Periodical. 4to, 229. Articles on various subjects, heavily illustrated; some with fold-out or cut pages. Red cloth, with cut-out on front. A nice copy. Designed by Federico Pallavicini and printed and bound at the Lakeside Press. An annual issued after the demise of the magazine. In her "Editor's Note," the magazine's founder/editor calls this volume "my reply to those who wrote [since the magazine's demise] and to the many others I hope still wonder, with some yearning, about Flair. I bring it back as a book in which you will find, in the separate folios which follow (each an entity in itself, each in fact like a slim, separate book), subjects in which I believe many people will share a common interest with me. You will see them presented with the same physical attributes which distinguished Flair Magazine -- the same beauty and invention and the element of surprise, imitations of which have flattered Flair since its suspension.
