Anno 1790

Posted Oct 24, 2011 at 10:36 CEST in Movies and television.

A new 18th century tv series is coming soon to Swedish tv, Anno 1790. Apparently it’s a crime series set in the 1790s, though from the trailers it seems to be set at least 20 years earlier.

I just found this via Isis’ Wardrobe.

Before the Automobile is an absolutely amazing costuming blog by a Finnish girl with some of the best 18th century costumes I’ve seen. She also makes beautiful 19th century costumes.

My favourite post is one about making her own 18th century shoes, something I have been planning for some time. Maybe now I’ll finally get around to making a pair!
