Browsing thru Amazon's Kindle Regencys I came across this book http://www.amazon.com/Greetings-Season-Stories-Barbara-Metzger-ebook/dp/B00GA2AS54/ref=pd_sim_kstore_71, 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.

|This original print is in such great condition it really didn't need any fixing up. But I did anyway. Note the "V" in the lower left corner. I believe that is the signature of the artist, H Vernet.|

|1825 dress. Probably from Ackermann's|
|Costume Parisien- the hat appears to be the main attraction.|
|Another 1825, Probably Ackermann's|

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.

I'm having a little trouble scanning these. Even with my "new, improved" scanner. Some of the fashion plates are actually crammed into the binding of the book. I don't think even cutting them out (sacrilege!) would work.
