Costume silhouettes

Costume Silhouettes by Mary B. Evans, 1890, is a recent addition to the HEARTH ( Home Economics Archive: Research, Tradition and History ) collection, Mann Library at Cornell.

Once you've entered the book (I usually click on the table of contents page) use the dropdown box on the "go to page" to find the illustrations.

  3. They remind me of Ipod ads and the current look of the Nordstrom catalog.
