There is PaperPursuits, but my god those prices are insane, and the shipping is just as crazy!!
Have you tried http://elegantlypapered.com/? I haven't bought anything there but it looks pretty good.

Oh, something went wrong. It's without the question mark.

To answer this, yes, I did. 15 accounts all created by me. But after that I have asked some of my high school and college friends and colleagues here at work to please sign up just for me. At first they were like "Okay...???". But I managed to explain to them that THIS IS THE ONLY WAY where I can view all of the vintage issues that I've been dying to see. So as of the moment, I have 35 accounts all in all that I manage for this friggin' Vogue Italia Archive. And it ain't easy. Everytime I would choose an issue to save in my portfolio, I'll always have a hard time if I should choose this or that. Would there be a Meisel editorial in this one or none.

I think it is really nice to collect old fashion magazines. I find it to be a very satisfying hobby. It leads to a sort of reconstruction - an imaginative reconstruction of some vanished splendour that you can rediscover, a yearning for some nameless, forgotten loveliness the world has lost.

Sorry for bother, for example, i made 3 accounts to get 9 free issues of VI, i was look on eBay, the previews of many issues of the mag (especially from 85-89 & 96-99). I know that these mags are very expensive, but seeing these previews, the editorials looked great & that way, i choosed the issues.

cottommouth, I created the thread of Vogue Italia July/August 1985, if you checked out. Well, this issue had 2 amazing.stories by Meisel with Veronica Webb & Cecilia Chancellor.

Here are the links.

RosieNikolaeva I always separate the pages. That's the only way I found to keep my collection settled in folds. And is the only way to get perfect/complete scans. My future desire is reprint in high quality and make portfolios. The pages I don't want to keep I re-sell on internet.

This is one of my projects: I'm filming the whole issues before the surgery (tear-sheeting)

Hello gang!
I too made various a/c to check out the Italian Vogue Archives. The mid eighties are my favourites because the contents are a dream. I just don't get the covers - they are atrocious.

Here's what I've learned from scanning magazines.

I used to just keep the entire magazine, but now I use the hairdryer method. It takes time but it's worth it. I put all my clippings in a folder that is too small for the paper. Scraps all go in recycling.

I think my next purchases are going to be Italian Glamours (princess_snt9 or whatever she's called has some but they are quite pricey), early Allures (kinda obscure), and Vogue Deutsch (having more and more of a presence on eBay, vegas4001 looks promising but still a bit pricey) issues, now that the need to scan Vogue Italia issues has been obsoleted in a sense.

And yes Virginia, I have made about seven VIA accounts. One with my email, one with my old email, one with my mum's email, four with disposable emails. I'm putting dibs on March 1993, July 1993 and December 1994.
