The illustrated weekly magazine "VU" ran over 600 issues between 21 March 1928 and 29 May 1940. Conceived as a beautiful ongoing film that would bring all of life within the range of the human eye, this weekly magazine was crammed with photographs and was designed to provide its readers with the same kind of experience as the cinema newsreels watched by millions of people each week. The text explains, the photo proves was the magazines editorial motto. This book gives "VU" the attention it deserves by liberally reproducing a selection of front covers, pages and spreads from throughout its short but prolific history, together with the commentary and analysis they demand.
