Overview


This immensely practical archive of old-time illustrations not only offers a wonderful glimpse of personal items and domestic accessories from a bygone era, it's also an absolute treasure chest of easily reproducible graphic art.
More than 900 cuts, culled from rare nineteenth-century periodicals, have been organized in convenient categories: clothes, furniture, kitchenware, toys and games, musical instruments, stationery supplies, and much more. Today's artists, advertisers, and craftspeople can choose from items ranging from fans, corsets, and parasols to a typewriter, feather duster, and high-topped "storm slippers." A comprehensive compendium of immediately usable images, this virtually inexhaustible supply of design inspiration will also thrill nostalgia enthusiasts, cultural historians, and lovers of Victoriana.
