Diana Vreeland Memo
While editor-in-chief at Vogue Magazine, Diana Vreeland was an avid typist and writer as a form of communication with her staff and collaborators. The book Diana Vreeland Memos: The Vogue Years, chronicles the editor’s work at this magazine from 1962 to 1971. This one memo from 1969 regards a list of animals said to be endangered at the time. It led me on a search to find images from the editorial pages of Vogue Magazine, both past and present, real and fake.
