These books were pulled from the stock because they’re in English and we don’t sell English.. BUT–! They’re also really kinda cool: They’re nothing but British women’s fashion plates from 1828-9 and 1843-4.

The question all of you out there is whether it be helpful or interesting for anyone for there to be a side-blog to post a bunch of these plates? 

(These kinda-crappy photos are just from a phone camera but I can easily take better photos with a better camera.)

I think people from these fandoms might be interested? : les mis, jane austen, american civil war (maaaybe if it’s a figure’s youthhood or something)

…There’re probably other fandoms from ~1820 to ~1850 that I don’t know about too.

Anyway, just checking for interest. Might do it anyway, but wanted to see what other people had to think first.

grantaire would love watching telenovelas, like if someone interrupted him within an episode and it wasnt a matter of life and death they would have to be ready to be snapped at in quick spanish because “oh my gOD YOU CANT INTERRUPT ME NOW SHE JUST FOUND OUT WHO HER FATHER IS AND SHES PREGNANT WITH ANOTHER MANS BABY WHO SHE NEVER EVEN HAD SEX WITH BECAUSE IF A MEDICAL ACCIDENT SOMEONE BETTER BE DYING IF YOURE TO INTERRUPT ME”
