Old Magazines [16 Jul 2006|03:41pm]

Printers' Ink 002 Printers' Ink 008

Hello dear members,

I've come into possession of a number of old Printers' Ink monthly magazines from the 1930s, and have a mind to sell them. I am, however, unsure of their value, and have been unable to find much information on said periodical online. It seems to be a periodical regarding commerce, business and advice on advertising.

The covers for several of the magazines are beginning to peel and become detached from the binding, but the magazines are in otherwise good condition, with clean pages (about 80-90 pages each), clear print and none missing. The advertisements are full of charm and humour, and the articles an interesting reflection of the era. I'll include a few pictures of two of the magazines to this post- the covers above may be enlarged. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and any prospective buyers are welcome to contact me via LJ or at liftthecarpet@yahoo.com. Thanks very much for your time.

Publisher: New York, N.Y. : Romer Pub. Co., 1919-1941.

Tallulah Bankhead fanlist [19 Jun 2006|11:38am]

[ mood | chipper ]

Sorry if this isn't allowed. I didn't see anything about NOT posting this kind of thing in the rules. And it's not about a community, so...

I just wanted to let y'all know that the Tallulah Bankhead fanlist has moved. Unfortunetely during the move all previous members were lost, so you'll have to rejoin, sorry.

What is a fanlist?Collapse )

The Campbell Apartment, Grand Central Station, NYC [27 Jan 2006|01:40am]

[ mood | distressingly itchy ]

Sets itself out as a tribute to the days of prohibition (or maybe just after).

has anyone been? Does anyone know the place or anything about? Just another posers spot or a decent place for a stiffish b & s on the way home from the office?

Introduction and photos [15 Nov 2005|10:35pm]

[ mood | sleepy ]

I just joined, and thought I'd say hi. I've always liked history, and within the past year I've been getting more and more interested in certain parts of it - mainly the 19th century and early 20th century. That is why I chose to have my senior photographs taken in an Edwardian gown!

I don't want this to be another one of those boring introduction posts, so I'll post these photographs of me. This isn't an authentic historical dress - its just a reproduction that has been in the family for a while. My mother and I created the hat ourselves. I want to be a costume designer, so I suppose that's a start! :)

These pictures were taken on Halloween - I would share my senior photographs, as they're obviously much nicer and quite authentic looking, but I don't have a scanner!

Are we freakish? [06 Nov 2005|09:40pm]

So, my best friend and I sit around many (most?) saturday nights, after we're done playing music oursleves, staying up 'til the wee small hours playing 78rpm records on hand cranked record players (a columbia grafanola table top, a floor model victor and a vv-50 picnic model - the 1921 iPod).

Is there anyone else out there who does this?

Stories [17 Jul 2005|05:32pm]

I have been working on a novel about gay subcultures in Berlin in the late 20s. If anyone is interested, I have posted 2 short stories in my journal under the heading "Stories" (entry date July 17th). They are some of the more polished pieces from this work, and I am hoping to submit them in grad-school applications, so any feed back would be greatly appreciated. They can be probably be read in any order, since they take place simultaneously, but "Das Ross" was written first. They are in English, and words/names containing umlauts had to be transliterated when I transfered them from Mac to PC. Thanks!

A Fred Astaire Community

I felt this was needed. I’ve recently created a community dedicated to the one and only Fred Astaire. I feel that there weren’t many communities that were devoted to his talented as opposed to the vast majority devoted to some stars. Therefore, I feel this mans talented needs to be celebrated by those who loved and will do for a long time. If you have ever seen any of his films and been in awe of his presence on the screen. Feel free to join and celebrate probably the greatest dancer that ever lived.

If you make icons or are a member of a community and would like to be affiliates please contact me and I will sort that out. Also if you make Fred icons…feel free to post them at the community whenever you want.

Thanks. Spread Fred!
