V magazine is published every two months by Visionaire publishing. Steven Gan is creative Director, Editor-in-Chief is Alix Browne, and Tabitha Simmons is Fashion Director. Mario Testino and the Lamsweerde & Matadin team are regular contributers-V also attracts most big name photographers. Advertising is above average. V magazine's large size and superior printing (eg. American printing) make it a great collectors item and a favourite amongst American Art students. V began as a fold-over edition with metallic text, but changed to flat format with flat colouring text within a year. V magazine began publishing with the anticipated September/October 1999 issue. Larger images of the covers can be seen at the V magazine website.
