In addition to a lot of pictures of monsters and babes — such as those in the cover image above — my book also includes a number of my images from this here blog. Thanks! I’ve been watching the excellent BBC show The Hour and if you like vintage fashions, man, point your eyeballs at that one. OMG that dress! Ye Olde Fashion. Thestarsonthehorizon asked: I've recently been flipping through your blog and I stumbled upon a post from February 2011 where you posted newspaper clippings from The Times, London, January 19, 1792.

Ye Olde Fashion

I was wondering where you found them. I'm a costume designer and tat resource seems invaluable. Sorry it took me so long to respond, I’ve been neglecting this blog horribly this summer as I’m sure people have noticed. The London Times are available to the public through ancestry.com and newspaperarchive.com, both of which are unfortunately pay sites. My actual professional background is in historical research, so I tend to accumulate sources and articles while doing other work. If you’re interested you can Ask Box me with your email address and I’d be more than happy to give you some specifics as to good research sources :)
