In this presentation, Candice will explore what a woman of the Regency, like Jane Austen, would have read to keep abreast of social and political news, fashion, literature, and theatre.
The most popular magazines of the day — including the Lady’s Magazine, Ackermann’s Repository of Arts, La Belle Assemblée, the Lady’s Monthly Museum, the Gallery of Fashion, and Le Beau Monde — will be discussed in terms of packaging, circulation numbers, content (including prints), editorial direction, and more.
Candice’s presentation includes lots of images of covers, titles pages, tables of contents, advertisements, fashion plates and other prints, and more.
This presentation can be either in=person or virtual. For in-person events, copies of many of the magazines, both bound volumes and individual monthly issues in their original covers will be on hand for attendees to examine.
