original spy prints vanity fair lithographs

We sell original Vanity Fair lithographs, not reproductions.
The normal size of a Vanity Fair print is about 10½ by 15½ inches (approx. 27x40 cm),
though this does vary somewhat by year and publisher and whether any trimming has occurred at some point during the past century.

Whenever possible, we provide the original descriptive text or a copy thereof.
