Vintage Magazine, launched in November 2009, is a celebration of design, culture, and the creative possibilities of print. Inspired by Fleur Cowles' legendary Flair (published 1950-51), Vintage Magazine invites an eclectic roster of writers and artists to survey the historical impact of art, music, fashion, food, travel, and more on today's culture. In both its content and artful construction, the biannual magazine embodies the word "vintage" in its broadest sense - one that connotes style, excellence, and timeless elegance.
