The Fan

In my research I have been able to look at some amazing things. Studying Victorian fashion, and getting to go into museum collections and unwrap amazing gowns and look at them, is better than Christmas. But one of the most fascinating objects I’ve been able to study is The Fan. More on this later, but for now, just a picture.

However, if you can’t wait, I did write and article on it. You can download the publication here.
