Hi, everyone! It’s that time again.
Yes, I know most of you can’t read that. It’s in Russian, a language that’s in a completely different alphabet. What’s cool about this title, Elle Russia, is that it’s one of a group of foreign Elles we subscribe to. Our holdings of the original French Elle begin in 1952 , and the American version began in 1985.

It was considered one of the most influential fashion titles in the 1960s, but by the 1980s, it was drooping a bit.

We’re particularly excited about these titles because we feel that seeing sources from around the world offers our students a more global context for their studies.
In order not to miss any issues, we’ve subscribed to the following editions:
