This is an extremely rare post-war issue of the British edition of Vogue from May 1947.

The cover was drawn by fashion illustrator Carl "Eric" Erickson for this special issue on Summer Travel.

English Vogue began in 1916 and this issue is a scarce antique. These early issues of UK Vogue are extremely difficult to find now.

This 1940's issue is full of fashion and designs of the day.
