The legendary French magazine La Vie Parisienne reached its peak in both popularity and relevance during the tumultuous years of World War I. Published weekly, the periodical covered current topics in literature, music, arts, and theatre, offering an attractive mix of subjects coupled with witty commentary on news of the day. The lavishly illustrated magazine employed many of the era's most famous and talented artists and became part of the fabric of Parisian life.
This deluxe large-format volume presents scores of sumptuous color illustrations from the magazine's heyday, the years between 1917 and 1922. Consisting chiefly of cover designs and editorial cartoons, the images abound in chic young beauties in fanciful and occasionally risqué tableaux. Many of these illustrations have not been readily available for nearly a century, making this compilation of particular interest and value to lovers of graphic art and Parisian culture.
