A prominent and long-running fashion periodical. It was initially a weekly ‘repository of fashion, pleasure, and instruction’ described by Mott as ‘a woman’s “Harper’s Weekly,”‘ containing fiction, miscellany, humor and illustration, some by Thomas Nast, supplementing the primary focus of fashion. In 1901 it became a monthly, and in 1913, was purchases by William Randolph Hearst who changed it, as Mott writes, from “Harperish to Hearstian,” with a more sophisticated, gay and ‘smart’ style. In the teens and twenties it is highly sought for its art-deco covers, and it continues today as one of the most important and respected periodicals of its genre.
