Here’s a link to a Canadian society that reenacts the 1750s, the Société d’Histoire In Memoriam. The costumes are very accurate and beautiful and there are tons of wonderful photos on the site!


18th century dinners in Belgium

Posted Oct 9, 2009 at 11:59 CEST in Events.


I got an e-mail about these 18th century dinners at the Kasteel d’Ursel, asking if I would write about them here, so I thought I’d pass along the information for those of you able to go to Belgium. I don’t understand the language on the site, but according to the e-mail I got it’s…

…a series of 18th-century dinners with a custom made theatre show…

Here’s a promotional video.


Mordet på Gustav III

Posted Sep 15, 2009 at 20:32 CEST in Books, Gustav III, People, and Swedish books.


Mordet på Gustav III by Lars Ericson Wolke is a tiny little book about (obviously) the murder of Gustav III. It’s very entertainingly written and gives us the facts about both Gustav, his murderer and the whole conspiracy and events leading up to the murder. It’s a quick and interesting read and there are quite a lot of pictures as well.

It’s only available in Swedish as far as I know.


Pimpernel Clothing

Pimpernel Clothing makes men’s clothing in 18th century styles, but meant for modern people. I think it’s a great idea. So far they only have waistcoats, but coats are on their way as well.

We set up Pimpernel Clothing to design and create clothing and accessories inspired by the beauty and quality of craftsmanship of period garments.

They also sell wonderful replicas of 18th century (and earlier) card decks.

Historical Sewing is a brand new 18th century fashion forum started by Madame Berg. I hope it takes off!
