Victorian mashup

More than a few Victorian women found an outlet for both their artistic and anarchic sensibilities in turning the ladylike domain of scrapbooking on its head. Way before the Surrealists and the resources of Photoshop manipulation, they produced these fetchingly subversive images, which come from an exhibit on the subject at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.


  1. Look out, Lewis Carroll!! These are fabulous. Did I miss this exhibit or is it current? Road trip, methinks...

  2. I think there's a permanent online exhibit. I'll have to scout around for more (I wager the Victoria & Albert would have some too, or the British Museum.)
