Advert For 'The Season', Periodocal
Medium: Print on paper
There was a rapid increase in the number and variety of periodicals produced for women of all classes during the 19th century. Many included articles on education, industry, science and technology but the majority of the content was dedicated to homemaking and as in the instance of the Season periodical which is advertised on this leaflet, fashion. For just 1 shilling this periodical provided women with illustrations of European fashion trends, ideas for the creation of their own clothes and many patterns for needlework and embroidery.
