Vogue launches digital archive
Fashion magazine Vogue has dug deep into its back catalogue to place all its content created over the past 120 years online. Every issue of the magazines US edition since its launch in 1892 has been painstakingly uploaded page by page to offer subscribers a fully indexed and searchable fashion time machine. Subscribers prepared to shell out $1,575 a year benefit from an archive of over 425,000 images, 300,000 ads and 100,000 articles, giving a lifetimes worth of reading material. The high price of the digital only material reflects the fact that it’s almost impossible to obtain print copies of some of the rarer back issues.
