La Vie Parisienne

La Vie Parisienne was a French weekly magazine founded in Paris in 1863, mildly risqué with beautiful illustrations reflecting the Art Nouveau and Art Deco stylization of it’s age.

The illustrations coupled with the intellectualism, wit and satire of its written contributions proved irresistible to the French public at the start of the 20th century. It’s popularity in the US was boosted during World War I when General Pershing personally warned American servicemen against purchasing it.

A number of vintage 1920’s copies currently available at the shop for $25 each. (3/1/15 – text adapted from Wikipedia)
