During that period, 1962 to 1994, he was master of the overall style (often content) and creation of Allure, Condé Nast Traveler, Details, Glamour, Mademoiselle, Self, Vanity Fair and Vogue. A sculptor, painter, photographer, printmaker, designer, editor and writer, Liberman embraced many lives in one.
