Additionally, thanks to this artwork, Vogue was able to save much of its monthly budget. This includes the interiors, whose graphics were produced by the artists involved in the project.

According to magazine reports, the savings will be donated to the Querini Stampalia Foundation in Venice. Thus aiding to repair the damage made to the recent floods in the Italian city.

But that’s not all: it’s the first time in 55 years that a Vogue cover is illustrated. Hence, a very special year for the industry.

Each illustration is now on sale with its respective magazine to create a small collection. It is worth mentioning that each volume can be purchased for 5 euros.
