A monster of Epic Proportion. The complete Joe’s Magazine (there were only 2 issues) So- first up- The incredibly scarce and huge Joe’s First Issue, arguably one of the rarest and most desirable magazine/portfolio’s of the nineties by one of the greatest stylists ever. It’s essentially Joe’s favourite work with his favourite people, who happen to include Bruce Weber, Steven Meisel, Paul Cadmus, Paolo Roversi, Azzedine Alaia, Vanessa Paradis, Dirk Bogarde and so on, and there’s lots of it, quite a lot unpublished elsewhere. Joe’s second issue- McKenna’s second masterpiece. Bruce Weber shoots Kate Moss, Raf Simons S/S 1999 by David Sims, Comme des Garcons by Craig McDean, at home with Hubert de Givenchy by Weber, around Brooklyn with Kirsten Owen by Juergen Teller, Miuccia Prada on fashion, Dogs by Weber, at school with David Sims, some beautiful Daniel Meadows stuff, Anna Wintour, Red Hair by Mario Sorrenti and lots more, all styled by McKenna. Seriously Incredible. Both issues are extremely scarce. Tip!
