Celebrating Ackermann's Repository


In honor of the 200th anniversary of the first publication of Ackermann’s Repository of Arts, Literature, Fashions, Manufactures, &c., AustenBlog’s own Cub Reporter Heather L. has delved into her collection of fashion plates from the periodical and made a beautiful computer wallpaper for January, the first of what will be a series of twelve monthly wallpapers that will be presented at Heather’s website, Solitary Elegance.

The wallpaper features two fashion plates–one from 1809 and one from 1815–and a quote from one of her letters. The wallpapers are available in small and large sizes and there are instructions are for installing them on Windows and Mac computers. Many thanks to Heather for sharing her pretty toys with her fellow Janeites!
