The University of Ulster Library is trialling the Vogue Archive.
The Vogue Archive contains the entire run of Vogue magazine (US edition), from the first issue in 1892 to the current month, reproduced in high-resolution color page images. Every page, advertisement, cover and fold-out has been included, with rich indexing enabling you to find images by garment type, designer and brand names.
The Vogue Archive preserves the work of the world’s greatest fashion designers, stylists and photographers and is a unique record of American and international fashion, culture and society from the dawn of the modern era to the present day.
The trial is available until the 10 March 2012.
ISSUU claims to be the fastest growing digital publishing platform in the world, delivering “exceptional reading experiences of magazines catalogues and newspapers”. Most researchers will want to consult peer-reviewed academic journals held by UU Library. However, Issuu gives access to other journals which may be of interest to researchers in art, design, fashion, film and photography. There are, for example, sample issues and short archives of Artguide, Chaos, Design Matrix, Le Négatif, Fan the fire magazine(formerly Load), Fotoblur, H magazine, Hole magazine, Humanize, I-fashion magazine, Illustration, LARmagazine, Musetouch visual arts magazine, Perspectives on design, Reflex, Revista foto DNG, PH magazine, Scruplz and Wusik sound magazine.
