I like W The First 40 Years because there is so much in it! I enjoy looking through fashion magazines and books because I love to see all the combinations one can make with fabric and other materials. In this book you can see how W Magazine has evolved through 40 years. For example, the first few covers looked a bit like newspapers, but now each cover has only one or two people on it with the text over parts of the photograph. There are also people I know of now that were interviewed and/or did a shoot with the magazine in previous years. It is interesting to look at these photos and see how that person has changed or grown. The different portrait styles really interest me as well.
