Vintage Fashion Illustrations: Edwardian Ladies in Floral Frames 1

"I would always rather be happy than dignified."
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

"Being a woman is a terribly difficult trade since it consists principally of dealings with men."
Joseph Conrad, Chance

Two black and white illustrations that originally appeared in a 1904 issue of French fashion magazine, La Mode Illustreé. These antique graphics show profiles of Edwardian woman enclosed within a floral frame (I think the flowers are yellow tansy). One is wearing a hat and the other seems to be deep in thought. You can download the free high-res 14" x 10" @ 300 ppi JPEG without a watermark for crafts, junk journals or mixed media art projects here.
