The Condé Nast Store

Condé Nast has opened up its archives to the public and are allowing us all to purchase their photos, magazine covers, and illustrations as wall art. and I think it is so great that Condé Nast has this service. There are so many incredible photos to choose from!!

The Vogue cover (by Erwin Blumenfeld of Jean Patchett) above is my favorite magazine cover of all time. What I would give to have it!!! Sigh.... The link to that image is here. Prices range from $225 - $535.

From the Condé Nast Store:
Each print is reproduced using state-of-the-art digital equipment. The Hahnemuehle pearl printing paper is a fiber-based surface developed in the tradition of the Silver Gelatin prints, the original gold standard of archival photographic reproduction. The paper’s weight of 285 grams per square meter reduces rolling and curling, and its UV-resistant pigmented inks can last for more than 100 years.

The Larson-Juhl hardwood frames—available in several sizes—include archival 8-ply, acid-free matting; ultraviolet-filtering Plexiglas; and hanging hardware. Each image is accompanied by an authentication letter from our archivist and a provenance label detailing the image, magazine, and artist.
