More Vogue colouring for Conran Octopus

Conran Octopus is publishing a new colouring book Vogue Goes Pop by award-winning fashion writer Iain R. Webb. 

The book, full of illustrations to colour in or embellish and original captions from the pages of the magazine, publishes on 2nd June, priced £10. 

The 1960s inspired-book follows first in the series, the Vogue Colouring Book, centred on the 1950s. Encompassing the age of the mini skirt and discotheque dress, readers are encouraged to post their artworks on social media, using the hashtag #voguegoespop. 

Octopus publisher Alison Starling acquired world rights from Condé Nast’s agent, Julian Alexander at L A W.

The year 2016 marks Vogue’s centenary year, which has begun with a major exhibition, Vogue 100: A Century of Style, at The National Portrait Gallery. 

Starling said: "As the adult colouring market matures, it is now all about brands and authors that can bring visual identity and personality to make books stand out on the shelf. Iain R. Webb is fashion journalism royalty and in Vogue’s centenary year one couldn’t hope for a stronger brand to collaborate with – together they are a fabulous team for the book."

Webb added: "I am thrilled to, once again, collaborate with Vogue magazine. For Vogue Goes Pop I have focused on the 1960s, a decade I experienced through my sister Mary's wardrobe as she moved from beatnik black mohair and white lipstick to rainbow coloured psychedelic prints and piled-high hairpieces. I hope that readers will have fun creating their own far-out, fantasy fashions."
