The original item from Scrumptious Venus is now SOLD.
A rare collection of 150+ Swedish sewing and embroidery magazines from the 1890s. They have been binded in a leather cover book. The name of the magazine was "Nordisk Monster Tidning" also spelled as "Nordish Monster Tidning". Each magazine showcase some fashion, mostly women and children to execute by expert seamstress. Embroidery patterns and / or monograms are also included in each edition.
I have not counted the number of magazines but they cover the September 1889 - December 1896 period. The magazine was published every 2 weeks. This book is like a time capsule on how people were dressing in this era. A nice historical book for people interested in antique fashion. The illustrations could also be used for mix media projects. Each magazine is 4 pages.
Condition: This collection book is in vintage condition. The leather binding is damaged as seen in the pictures, still the book is holding together. The magazines inside have yellowed with time. The first and last ones present the most damage, while the other ones are in really good shape considering the age. Click on ZOOM for larger pictures. Contact me if you need more information.
