Last Sunday when I attended the Jazz Age Lawn Party I finally got a chance to purchase an issue of Zelda: The Magazine of the Vintage Nouveau. I have been eyeing their sights and hoping one day I would get a chance to read this magazine since there are so few magazines dedicated to vintage. What makes this magazine even more special in my opinion is that not only is it published in New York but it also focuses on a time period of the 1920's-1930's.
Zelda Magazine was Founded by Diane Naegel who was huge vintage enthusiast. She tragically passed away in 2011 but she left behind such an incredible legacy with her magazine, as well as with her loved ones and many friends.
So now that I have an issue in my hands, I wanted to share a little bit of what was inside Issue #2 from 2010.
I will be honest, it was really hard to choose which issue to purchase but once I saw they had an interview with Robert Osborne, my heart just went all a flutter! I have a mad crush on this man! Not in a "I want to marry you way" but in a "I am in awe of him way". I just could sit and listen to him speak all day long. And yes-it's on my dream to-do list to go to the TCM Film Festival. I know, I know...I dream big.
The interview with Mr. Osborne was divine as was every single page of this magazine. I mean it! It is so beautifully crafted and written and I am so pleased with it that I am hoping to subscribe to it at some point!
Another amazing article that I just loved was of the last Ziegfeld Girl, Doris Eaton Travis. Zelda did a lengthy interview with her and I am so grateful that they did because she passed away in 2010 at the young age of 106!
I think it is so important and valuable to write down the stories and memories of others. One of the big reasons I am the memory keeper in my family.
My favorite part of the interview was when Ms. Eaton Travis was asked if she had anything to say to their readers and the people who are interested in keeping the past and it's history alive. For all those who have doubts about their blogging, their passion for vintage, or just simply need some words of encouragement....Ms. Eaton Travis says it best. Read the excerpt below....
I just adore this magazine and look forward to reading more! I hope you liked it too! The latest issue for the Spring/Summer 2012 is available now as well.
