However British Vogue can now be used to beautify walls too. The British edition of the fashion magazine is for the first time allowing its readers to grab prints from its valuable image archive.
The precious collection of images captured over the years by renowned photographers and illustrators is set to go on sale online. In association with Easy Art, the mag has compiled a collection of 50 pieces that date back to 40s, 50s and 60s. This debut collection boasts of the works of Cecil Beaton, Clifford Coffin, Eugene Vernier, Henry Clarke, Don Honeyman, Claud Virgin and the likes.
