British Vogue to sell archival images as prints
Vintage snap happy
Music to fashion photography lovers' ears everywhere, British Vogue is to open up its archive of historical shoots and illustrated images for its readers to buy as art prints.
The venture will launch on March 14 with a selection of its prints via Easyart.com, a British retailer that carries framed and unframed art and photographic pieces. The first 50 prints to debut will date from the 40s, 50s and 60s – with photographs by Cecil Beaton, Henry Clarke, Clifford Coffin, Eugene Vernier, Don Honeyman and Claude Virgin amongst those featured.
Editor of British Vogue, Alexandra Shulman, revealed: "This is an example of the best of the old marrying happily with the newer print-on-demand technology, as we begin to build up to British Vogue's 100th anniversary..." [Which falls in 2016].
Additional prints from Vogue's archive will be available to buy on the website at later dates.
