I thought you all would like to see this.

Costume Chronicles is a bi-monthly web magazine that focuses solely on costume dramas. They always have great layouts and some talented writers, and their latest issue, November/December 2010, is all about Jane Austen! I even contributed an article to it, about Northanger Abbey. :)

Just go to http://www.costumechronicles.com/ and click on "Current Issue" at the top, and the link to download it will be there--just click "Download"! It's a PDF file, just so you know.

The "Archives" are where you can find download links for all the past issues--they are FABULOUS!

And best of all... the January/February 2011 issue will be all Jane Austen too! It will be up February 1! :)

ENJOY!

I know, Megan! Their graphic design is great and has been that way for almost every issue. I adore the Pride and Prejudice illustration on the "Contents" page! :)

Oh, I'm sorry you had trouble, Robin. Do you have dial-up? That's what we have here at home and it takes a few minutes for some of the beautiful pictures on the site to load and then the links at the top of the page pop up. If you have high-speed, then I'm not sure of the problem. (And what would the color of the background have to do with it?) I hope you'll keep trying because the issues are amazing!

Robin (goodreadscomtriviagoddessl) The color of the background was what I was just description for if anyone else went on the site and got the same results.

Esther | 1 comments The website is also flash based, so if flash is not installed on your browser (or if flash is blocked completely) it may not load for you. :)


message 11: by Robin (new)

Robin (goodreadscomtriviagoddessl) we don't have that capability at least not on my computer.

Hey, Esther! Great to see you here! THANKS SO MUCH for explaining what might be causing the problem. I had completely forgotten Flash was needed to run the site.

Sorry about that, Robin, but I hope maybe you can access a computer with Flash sometime and see the site and the wonderful issues of Costume Chronicles!

Robin (goodreadscomtriviagoddessl) I have a computer but I don't have Flash.
