Vanity Fair Prints

Original Vanity Fair Cartoons

During the years 1869-1914, Vanity Fair Magazine published over 2,300 Full Page Satirical Chromolithographs of important people of the day, known today as "Spy Prints". A distinguished list of artists were employed by Vanity Fair during this time, including Sir Leslie Ward "Spy", who contributed 1,325 Caricatures (more than half of the cartoons), Carlo Pellegrini "Ape", who contributed 333 Caricatures, Liberio Prosperi "Lib", who contributed 55 Caricatures, along with many other talented artists. Today, these Vanity Fair Cartoons are highly sought after and have become prized collectibles! 

Many of the Original Vanity Fair "Spy Prints" that you will find on our website are quite rare and increasingly hard to find, meaning that once they are sold, we may not get another one in stock for quite some time. We have a solution for that! We have created a Hi-Resolution Scan file of all of our Vanity Fair Prints in our inventory. This means that we can "Print-On Demand" any item that you see in our store! Please visit our "Giclee Prints" section of our store to see what is currently available, and if you do not see what you are looking for, please contact us so we can create one for you!

We offer our Original Vanity Fair Prints, as well as our Limited Edition Vanity Fair Giclee Reproduction Prints with the option to include archival matting with your purchase.
