The library now has unfettered access to the Vogue archive for one month only. From the comfort of your PC, browse through some historically and culturally important icons, designs and fashions from the late 19th century up to now.
With photographs from Irving Penn, Cindy Sherman, Tim Walker and Marino Testino, and articles from eminent writers and thinkers like Harold Rosenberg, Dorothy Parker and Aldous Huxley, Vogue archive will offer you and your students a wealth of material for arts, design and culture. (If you are off-campus, you will need to login to the Cardiff Metropolitan network to access the above links)
The trial runs until the end of May. If you would like the library to subscribe to this, please have a look and leave your feedback from our Vogue trial page. Alternatively, email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
