    Didn't know where to put it but Groupon is offering $8 1 year subscription for US Vogue. Offer good through the weekend.

    Wow very interesting, pretty surprised about Liya being the best seller, if true they should be doing more model covers then! Thanks for posting.

    Glad to hear that. Liya is stunning but I would never expect her to be the best seller for Bazaar UK.

    It's great to know that at least in the UK, covers with black cover models/singers actually DO sell.:cool:

    OMG OMG OMG, I just read in a Dutch newspaper that they are planning on publishing a Dutch Vogue in the near future. I've always wondered if the Dutch market was relevant enough to have it's own Vogue but right now I'm just very excited!

    ^ Together with Doutzen I guess, or they will go for a foldout cover with group shot.

    ^Wow, again...I just wonder how excited people there are about everyone having access to it?

    Have I become too cynical? :lol: Sorry, but it's sort of shocking that they wouldn't keep a database for themselves...

    That said, if they charge for access, that's like being able to resell every single issue of Vogue all over again...

    That's very true. I wonder how they're going to prevent people from screen capping and spreading it though? On the other hand, it is awfully convenient as a resource that you pay like $10 a month for. Lots of people would do that and not even care about downloading it if it wasn't super easy. Yeah, they could easily make $1-10M/year on that, not counting the ads.

    I really don't expect them to give out their entire archive to the public for free, so I'll just settle with a reasonable monthly fee for access in the site.

    I hope it's free or access through your magazine subscription.

    Well I'm sure in the past decade or two there is a database for those issues, but I am not surprised that the really old issues, which are the ones he mentions, are not in a digital database. They have hard copies of those old issues in an archive in the building, but not a digital database.... yet.

    It truly is surprising they would do this, even if there is a fee to pay for access!

    I, of course am getting an orgasm with just the thought of it! Imagine being able to access all those issues? :bounce:
