The Library currently has access to the Vogue Archive, an online collection of every issue of American Vogue that has been published since its first appearance in 1892.  You can either search across the entire archive or flick through issues from cover to cover, it includes everything – covers, adverts, fold-outs – all reproduced in high resolution colour.

It contains some fascinating material; fashion shoots by Diane Arbus, covers by Cecil Beaton, adverts illustrated by Andy Warhol.  Anybody who’s interested in fashion, fashion history, photography, graphic design as well as marketing and advertising should find something valuable here, the Vogue Archive is available at http://www.southampton.ac.uk/library/resources/list/v.html (remember to log into the VPN first if you’re off-campus)
