Vanity Fair Prints

The British magazine Vanity Fair published wonderful caricature prints of famous artists, statesmen, politicians, sporting figures and other notables in each issue in the 1800s and early 1900s. This section of the web site contains some of our Vanity Fair prints. Vanity Fair prints of judges and lawyers can be viewed in the legal section and there are a few in the political section.

The first print below shows you how these prints look framed. We have copies of most of the original descriptions of the prints that were published at the time and will include them with the print. Most of the prints come already matted to a standard 16 x 20" frame size so it will be easy and inexpensive to frame them and are enclosed in a protective plastic sleeve, an example of which you can see here or here. We can frame all the prints we offer, probably less expensively than your local custom framer. Shipping on the matted prints will cost $15 and framed prints will be $20 (with shipping discounts available for two or more prints).

Below are an eclectic mix from our collection of artists, scientists, sportsmen, clergy and politicians. Click on the name of the person or the pictures below for more information about the prints.
