Misc. News Roundup

Things you may have heard elsewhere, but cross-posted here in order to be complete: the Complete Jane Austen will broadcast on PBS/Masterpiece Theatre beginning January 13, 2008. AustenBlog thinks they’ll probably start with the new ITV productions (Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and Northanger Abbey). See my reviews of all three on my Regency costume movie reviews page. Other productions will include the new Sense & Sensibility, along with the Kate Beckinsale Emma (1997) and 1995 Pride & Prejudice.

The auction catalog for the Tasha Tudor auction is now available from Whitaker Auctions. Cost is $45. I got mine the other day and it’s definitely worth getting. Tons of color photos of gorgeous garments; most are 1830s, but there are items from the 18th century through the 19th century.

And finally, lots of people have been sending around the link for the online costume galleries for the National Museum in Denmark. Tons of gorgeous color photos of various gowns (which will be integrated into the very-soon-coming Real Women’s Clothing Guide update), plus scaled patterns for some! If you’ve ever heard any of us discuss the Moden books, they’ve got scans of all the images and patterns from those books on this site. Very cool!

Finally, ye olde yard sale is still going strong. Lots of items still available – please email me if you’re interested in any. In about a week, I’ll put things on ebay, so now is your chance to get them for cheap.
