Many of these plates are from some of the leading French, British, American, and other continental fashion journals of the 19th century and early 20th century: Belle assemblée; Le bon ton; Le Follet, courrier des salons; Journal des dames and des modes; Godey's lady's book and magazine, and others. They are primarily hand-colored engravings although some of the plates after 1885 are colored lithographs. A project was undertaken by the Digital Initiatives Program to digitize and provide online access to selections from this collection. Blanche Payne taught historic costume and apparel design in the School of Home Economics at the University of Washington. Blanche Payne retired from the University of Washington faculty in 1966. Plate 1: Empire period fashion. Plate 2: Georgian period fashion. Other sources

To make it easier for teachers and lecturers to access the most popular material with groups, we have developed themed study room resources which contain original prints and drawings. This Study Room resource examines designs for wallpaper and texiles by designers from 1868 to 1978. Teachers' notes This resource could be adapted for different key stages.
