    It’s so easy to get lost in the archives isn’t it? ls there a particular reason you chose costumes? These are phenomenal.

    @Rachel having worked as a stylist and costume designer for almost 10 years, I am always looking to vintage images for inspiration.

    The illustration technique is pretty inspiring too, such a graceful hand! I’m loving the harlequin skirt and striped pants.

    Oh WOW! Thank you so much for the link to the Smithsonian Library.
    I’m kicking myself – I purchased a few of these for a dime each when I stumbled across a garage sale in San Francisco. I SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN THE WHOLE LOT. I am literally now taking off the scotch tape and will immediately dignify then with a proper frame. Who would have thunk….
