I’m writing a series on nineteenth century illustrators, so in the mean time I’ll give you a collection of interesting articles all around the internet.
This site features a bunch of illustrations and clipart from the nineteenth century, most of them royalty-free (so you can use them wherever you like!) They have a lot of illustrations from one of my favourites as well: Sir John Tenniel, who illustrated Alice in Wonderland.
Thanks to a BBC reality show, “Victorian Farm”, Henry Stephens’s 1844 book The Book of the Farm was the most searched-for title on Abebooks.co.uk. Victorian farming is quite fashionable.
Also from the Guardian, Victorian novels help us become better people. That’s interesting!
Nineteen Teen writes an interesting post on the thin clothes of the early nineteenth century.
Wonders and Marvels talks about abortion in the nineteenth century. Apparently, one of the most famous abortionists was a woman, named Madame Restell.
