Highlighted Resource: Vogue Archive

Self-photograph by Cecil Beaton. Published in Vogue, September 15, 1968.

BC Libraries recently purchased the database The Vogue Archive, an important primary resource for the study of fashion and of American and international popular culture. The database contains every page of every issue of Vogue magazine (US edition) from 1892 to the present.

It includes over 400,000 pages in high resolution color and every cover, advertisement, feature, photograph, and illustration. “Images are presented in the context of the original magazine issue so users have the contextual information they need to interpret the image: not just retailer information and pricing, but cues about when and where garments were appropriate and who might wear them – invaluable for historical research and for disciplines such as theatrical costume design.
