Kaleidoscope Flowers

Notes from a sweater fiend, whiskey enthusiast, and librarian in training.

An advertisement for Ricky Jay’s KCRW radio spot printed by Pat Reagh circa 2003. Part of the Pat Reagh papers at the Clark Library. Looks like Pat, Jay, and I have similar interests.
Sorry to put you on blast Gene Autry Oklahoma Museum, but I hate it when a page lets you click an image, ostensibly to enlarge it, and then it opens a window with an image that is basically the SAME SIZE. 
I tried to poke around on the internet for an explanation of why this happens or what it even is, but I must not have looked in the right places. Suffice to say that it is an unpleasant user experience and this practice must be stopped! Stopped, I say!

Described as a symbol of modesty to colonial Lima, veils revealing one eye became a societal craze for anonymous flirtation. 

The photograph was made after 1872. And the illustration between 1840 and 1860.

[Portrait of a Peruvian tapada leaning against a balustrade], 1872, Eugenio Courret. Getty Research Institute.
[Tapada with blue saya], between 1840-1860, Pancho Fierro. Getty Research Institute.

It’s like the Tinder of 19th century Peru. I love it.
