Book Covers and Christmas Cards

Browsing thru Amazon's Kindle Regencys I came across this book, which I naturally purchased.  I thought I'd add another picture for the cover.  Can't review the book, as I haven't read it yet, but it looks promising.  I'm rather flattered that they used my image, but [tossing head]. I wish I'd got a little credit, maybe a link to my (long neglected because my daughter HOGS the scanner all the time! Also I'm writing.) Blog.

I always wanted the gorgeous fashion plates from Ackermann's, Costume Parisien, Ladies Magazine (and others) to be used as book covers, and its gratifying to see it finally being done, though sadly, not very well. At least, not as well as my efforts.

La Belle Assemblee Sept 1807

I'm having difficulty scanning from the center of the book, as you can see by the blurring on the left side of the fashion plate.  I finally broke down and ordere a "hand scanner", which will arrive some time next week.

Equestrian Ladies from Costume Parisien

I colorized the plate on the right- my original was so faded, everything was greyish-yellow, except the lady's green shoes and bright scarf.  Also, I added some color to the fur hat on the left.
