Vogue Picture Records were a series of 78 rpm music discs produced between 1946 and 1947 by Sav-Way Industries of Detroit, Michigan. Each 10-inch (as well as an occasional 12-inch) disc featured a colorful illustration sandwiched between the vinyl grooves. The limited production run as well as the visual appeal has generated a small cult of collectors who scour auctions and estate sales looking for that rare piece to fill the gaps in their collection. The music is an afterthought for most Vogue fans, since most Sav-Ways artists were pop-era also-rans. Some serious collections have built up around the Vogue discs, including one at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Ebay is a good source of vintage Vogue as well.
