ERWIN BLUMENFELD Cecil Beaton NORMAN PARKINSON Horst VOGUE magazine August 1946
Sunglasses cover of British Vogue; rare vintage issue. The cover does not seem to be credited but we think it's by Erwin Blumenfeld as it is his style and his work is featured inside this issue.
It's a really decadent cover as austerity in Britain was in full swing in after World War II.
Charming illustration of the Vogue Roundabout featuring Cecil Beaton, Lee Miller, Horst, Carl Erickson, Rene Bouche and Claude Coffin on hobby horses and describing where they've each reported from recently.
Clothes and the Englishwoman photographed by Beaton features Moira Shearer, Anne Clifford and 'Mrs Ray Milland and Mrs Reginald Gardiner', 5 pages.
Coffin photographs models posing in front of paintings at the Tate Gallery (now Tate Britain) and the V&A Museum.
Erwin Blumenfeld photographs summer clothes throughout.
Beaton shoots after the manner of a Mary Cassett painting but with clothes from New York.

Irish Country Life by Anthony Denney, 4 pages.
Spotlight on Dublin includes portraits of Ireland's finest writers, poets and painters ...and a haunting photo of a "tinker" gypsy with a child wrapped in her woven blanket.
