To arms comrades, to arms! Join the fight between the Second French Empire and the Kingdom of Prussia in the 19th century struggle for German unification as Period Paper proudly presents a portfolio of wood engravings depicting the splendors and horrors of the Franco-Prussian War and Victorian era Europe. Begin at the bottom with the miners or "pitmen" of the industrial coal fields of South Durham, England before you finally work your way to the top of historic Parisian architectural skylines. If all that left you a little burned out, head to downtown Paris and discuss Communard politics over Molotov cocktails with a fellow Petroleuse (arsonist), that's sure to be an "enlightening conversation." Or sample the local cuisine and grab a bite to eat at the Cat and Dog markets to satisfy that "pet" craving. Then take a break from the horrors of war to enjoy the majesty and romance of the British royal wedding between Princess Louise, the daughter of Queen Victoria, and John Campbell, the Marquis of Lorne.
