Bound Copies of Vogue

For my birthday a few years ago, my now-ex-husband gave me bound copies of every Vogue magazine published in the 1960s. He purchased the volumes, 20 in all, from a rare-books dealer in New York City. I’m a huge fan of 1960s fashion, and my first job out of college was as an assistant editor at Vogue, so the magazines mean a lot. I use them for inspiration, particularly when it’s time to start a new collection. Cost: $20,000
