London: i-D Magazine, 1984. Quarto, publisher's photo-illustrated paper wraps.
September 1984 issue of the "original fashion and style bible" i-D. Founded by British Vogue art director Terry Jones – along with his wife Tricia, and Perry Haines – as a magazine that took street style seriously, "It was about the idea that you could do it yourself rather than have a fashion magazine dictate what you could wear. It was the time when post-punk, club life, and the music scene were all coming together. It was about DIY self-expression" (from a 2016 interview with W magazine). From its launch in 1980 to 1985 Terry and Tricia produced the magazine from the top floor of their West Hampstead home, growing the magazine from hand-stapled photocopies with small distribution to a full-color fashion magazine with proper ads. It has since become a major influence on the fashion industry, helping nurture the careers of iconic photographers (such as Nick Knight, Juergen Teller and Wolfgang Tillmans) and giving budding stars Madonna, Sade, and Björk their first cover shots. Light edgewear. Near fine. Item #3761
