Done with such FLAIR……

Discovering Flair Magazine is like stumbling upon a small street in Manhattan paved with cobblestones and lined with historic townhouses. It’s filled with a history and its own unexpected charm, but there’s also a timeless quintessentially classic quality about it.I distinctly remember the first time I glimpsed Flair Magazine when I was a student at Parsons School of Design exploring The Strand’s rare books collection several years back. I did some research to find it was a unique publication that was printed only for one year from 1950-51. I tracked down two issues of Flair, each with a cover story and articles devoted to two places I love: the April 1950 issue on Paris and the September 1950 issue about New York City. Below are scans from the original 1950 issue featuring New York City.
