Indulge yourself in these retro Vogue covers painted by the surrealist mastermind Salvador Dali.

Between the 1930s and the 1970s, the quirky artist painted a series of Vogue covers that look like they should be framed and displayed in an art museum. The entire set takes you out of space and time, and into an entirely different dimension.

One 1939 Dali cover shows two women with bouquets of flowers and branches for heads, lounging in formal attire in a desert.

A personal favorite is the 1944 painting which uses various elements such as flowers, tree roots, and bricks to form the letters that spell out the word “Vogue”.

Perhaps Vogue should revert back to having revered modern day artists design their covers. What do you think?
