Over the last 21 years, star photographer Steven Meisel consistently shot all of Italian Vogue's covers back to back. Thus, he crucially shaped the fashion magazine's image, as well as the Italians' internationally renowned unique style.
The new picture book "Three Hundred and Seventeen & Counting" documents all the cover shoots Steven has done for the international fashion bible's Italian issue from 1988 until the completion of the book in 2009.
The covers were also shown at the Festival International de Mode & de Photographie in Hyères, France, from the 24th of April up to the 7th of June 2009.
The book may have been limited edition, but Meisel's images will be around for a long time.
