A must for every fashion-conscious young lady during the mid-to-late 1800's was a subscription to GodeyÕs LadyÕs Book. Published by Louis A. Godey from 1830-1878, it was the most widely circulated magazine in the period before the Civil War and it continued to be a leading American womenÕs magazine until it ceased publication in 1898. GodeyÕs was known for its beautiful (and costly) hand-tinted engraved fashion plates which were often cut out and framed by the young women who bought the magazine. Period Paper is pleased to offer that option once again Ñfor 21st century fashionistasÑ original Victorian fashion plates perfect for framing and display.
