Last week I found out the Met has digitized many of their exhibition catalogs. Of course I had to head over there and see what treasures could be found.
They did not disappoint. The Korean Renaissance (didn't know there was such a thing), Napoleon, posters, British fashion, samurais, a bunch of artists, Dior. Then the jackpot.
From Queen to Empress: Victorian Dress, 1837–1877
But then I kept looking, going through the pages, and found another gem.
The Imperial Style: Fashions of the Hapsburg Era
I haven't looked through it yet, but it should be another treasure trove because it covers a wider era than the Victorian catalog.
I love the Met!
