Salvador Dali

VOGUE, Décembre 1971–Janvier 1972, No. 522

Condé Nast, Paris. Highly sought-after special issue of VOGUE with cover designed by Salvador Dali, who also served as the guest editor; published on the fiftieth anniversary of the magazine. From the interior “Dali takes the totalitarian responsibility of the 1971 edition of Vogue which, to differentiate itself from all the others, is called, this one and only time Vogué.” For the cover, Dali manipulates a photograph of Marilyn Monroe by Philippe Halsman (Magnum) to make her appear as Mao Zedong. The back cover features another cover design (upside down) with a self-portrait of Dali. Dali’s vision can be seen throughout the issue in the layout, choice of photographs and even the advertisements. 12.5×9.5”, 243pp., text in French. Very good condition; binding is split with a few pages detached, cover is near perfect. $300
