Overview

What did a Regency lady do all day? In between changing her clothing and sitting for her necessary toilette, surely she sought a variety of amusements to relieve the boredom in a world without television or the internet?

Magazines from the period contained colorfully detailed hand-painted prints of women and men wearing the latest fashions. Oftentimes the drawn models displayed the garments while engaged in daily activities or popular entertainments. What a marvelous way to peek into the past and answer the above questions!

REGENCY PRINTS REFINED: A LADY'S DIVERSIONS is a photo book with 36 prints from Costume Parisien, La Belle Assemblée, Ackermann's Repository, and other magazines published from 1790 to 1825. With the marvels of modern graphic design, each print has been painstakingly freed from the impurities of time, beautifully revealing the original precision and elegant taste. They have been refined!

Gorgeous full-page images from the era of Jane Austen, and a bit of history too. Fabulous! How can one resist?
