Inside Vogue House

One Building, Seven Magazines, Sixty Years of Stories

Grant Scott


A fascinating look at the history of London’s iconic Vogue House – come behind the scenes with a former Tatler art director to discover the world famous magazines produced there and the stories of the people who made them great.

Step through the revolving doors of 1 Hanover Square, Mayfair, and enter the glossy world of high fashion, high society and high drama.

Greet ‘the Peters’ at reception and take the lifts up from the lobby to the Vogue photography studios and the fashion closets of the fifth floor, or catch up on gossip whilst you queue for tea and toast at ‘the hatch’, handily situated opposite Tatler on the third floor. Join the GQ team for evening drinks before a night on the town, then seek refuge the next day in the elegantly tasteful offices of World of Interiors or House and Garden.

“The building was too small to contain so many big personalities, everyone passed through those doors.”

Bronwyn Cosgrave, Vogue

For sixty years, Vogue House has been a building where the great and the good started (or ended) their careers. A place where contemporary artists rubbed shoulders with royalty, and culture was shaped.

From the mailroom to the boardroom, work experience to well-known names and everyone in between, this captivating book lays bare the creativity and chaos of popular magazine publishing through the decades.
