Grace Coddington isn’t the only one in the Vogue family with a book to celebrate. Across the Atlantic, the editors of British Vogue have a new book of their own.

Voice of a Century celebrates 100 years of the magazine’s status as the fashion bible in Britain. The book comprises over 400 Vogue photographs and illustrations, correspondence and covers, plus 32,000 words of interviews from 100 Vogue contributors.

For those who are looking for adding a fashionable, rare and limited-edition item to their book collections, now is your chance. The book is limited to only 1,916 craftsman-bound copies, and each 504-page volume is individually signed by at least seven major contributors.

What makes the book even more unique are the letters included by Helmut Newton and Cecil Beaton. Other exclusive contributors include Audrey Withers, Lee Miller, Jerry Hall, Norman Parkinson, Jean Shrimpton, David Bailey, Kate Moss, Bianca Jagger, and Juergen Teller.

British Vogue editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman says of the book “During the lifetime of British Vogue, there have been many Vogue books published. But never a book such as this. Vogue — Voice of A Century is the ultimate anthology of the magazine, a celebration of 100 years of the many talents that have created the thousands of pages of magical images and interesting and inspiring journalism.”

Voices of a Century, published by Genesis Publications, officially launches of September 15, the same day as the first issue in 1916. The book will be unveiled at a series of exclusive events beginning in London and travelling globally through 2017.
