Godey's Lady's Fashion

Aren't these illustrations beautiful? I found them at the On-Line Digital Archive of Documents on Weaving and Related Topics at the University of Arizona. Here is a link to the page I found them at. Scroll down until you see Fashion Plate or Godey's Lady's Book. Just click on the Sample Page and then right-click and save the image.
I just think these would make beautiful fabric prints for CQ or backgrounds for blogs among many other uses I'm sure you can think of.

I've ready about this magazine for years, and always thought how it must have been for young ladies waiting for the new issue to arrive in the mail. Almost unheard of now to wait for anything! It set the styles for clothing, hair, deportment, everything! The U of A has a wonderful collection of art and history. I'm glad they are getting some of it online.

Melissa, this is not a comment on the book but a huge thank you for your technical help. I was so frustrated yesterday not being able to 'pull' the banner down from the top of the page I took it off in the end. Now reading your instructions I now have it in the right place. Your instrs. were sooo easy to follow, thank you so much for taking the time to do this.
