The Best of Flair
In 1950, Fleur Cowles established what would become one of the most influential magazines of the twentieth century, seen by many as an art form in itself. Critically lauded for its sharp mix of clothes, literature, art, travel, décor, theater, and humor, Flair made publishing history with its combination of eclectic editorial content and lavish production quality.
The Best of Flair is a compilation of the magazine’s best content chosen by the woman who created it. It features interviews and contributions from some of the most noted artists and celebrities of the past fifty years: Lucian Freud, Jean Cocteau, Tallulah Bankhead, Saul Steinberg, Salvador Dalí, Simone de Beauvoir, Walker Evans, James Michener, Ogden Nash, Gypsy Rose Lee, Clare Boothe Luce, George Bernard Shaw, John O’Hara, Margaret Mead, and Tennessee Williams.
This facsimile edition of The Best of Flair offers the same ingenious bookmaking as its predecessor—published by Rizzoli more than ten years before it—including multiple gatefolds with die-cuts, booklets, and accordion folder leaflets.
