Support scholarship and creative inspiration with our new primary source collection that spans the spectrum of arts and the history of architecture, from fine and applied arts, through to interior and industrial design, landscape gardening, and restoration.

With deep backfile coverage from first issues through to 2005, this is an essential resource for vocational study and scholarly research of the arts from the late nineteenth to the twenty-first century.

Art and Architecture Archive offers many titles previously unavailable in digital form, allowing libraries to replace torn and worn print issues with pristine digital facsimiles. Via the powerful ProQuest interface, users can  search the full text, browse and retrieve articles and advertisements, and view illustrations, photographs and technical plans in detail and in context, from every page of every issue to gain new insights and inspiration.

For libraries, AAA reduces the work of managing print journal subscriptions and saves budget on renewals, shelving, and archiving. For students and scholars, this resource provides rich stores of information and images to inspire thought and creativity.
