The Digital Collections has created a Pinterest board on The Met’s Pinterest page. We have pinned over 100 of the most visually striking items from the Digital Collections, and more pins are going up each week. The images range from fashion plates to artists’ sketches, Scottish clansmen to fine bindings. Here are some of the highlights so far:
This fashion plate is taken from an August 1922 issue The Dileneator, an American fashion and lifestyle magazine from the late 19th and early 20th century (for which Theodore Dreiser was briefly the managing editor).
From a facsimile edition of the book Herbs for the mediaeval household: for cooking, healing and divers uses, the caption reads “Cleansing the scalp” and is dated 1491.
These are just some of the highlights from our Pinterest board. You can follow all of the pins we are posting by going here.
