Genesis spent many happy hours in the building when working on Vogue: Voice of a Century
, where we were granted access to their basement library (which contains every issue) researching for the book. The building is even featured in the limited edition showing the incredible damage made by the Luftwaffe in WWII, as well as destroying more than a million knitting patterns at their pattern headquarters in the City of London.

is a landmark publication compiling photographs, illustrations, correspondence, covers and interviews with 100 renowned Vogue contributors.
Strictly limited to only 1,916 craftsman-bound copies, each 504-page volume is individually signed by at least eight major contributors.
