1899 Double exposure ‘trick’ photography of Thomas Edison’s rival, Nikola Tesla in his laboratory in Colorado Springs. It was here he pursued his vision of wireless electrical transmission based on the alternating current (AC) electricity supply system used widely today. #nikolatesla #tesla #coloradosprings #alternatingcurrent #electricity #magnifyingtransmitter #experiment #innovation #doubleexposure #centurymagazine #1890s #photoproject #modernhistory #magnifyingtransmitter #doubleexposure #centurymagazine #innovation #experiment #1890s #electricity #tesla #alternatingcurrent #photoproject #modernhistory #coloradosprings #nikolatesla
Home to Barnes & Noble for almost 25 years, 33 East 17th Street was constructed in 1881 as a commercial building. One of the first tenants to take up residence was the Century Company, publishers of the Century Magazine (which, according to the New York Times in 1892, “made New-York, instead of London, the centre of the illustrated periodicals published in the English language”). Because of this prominent tenant (though they were only one of several), 33 East 17th Street quickly became know as “The Century Building.” Designed in the whimsical Queen Anne style (much more commonly found in domestic than commercial architecture), the Century Building was designated a NYC landmark in 1986.

Today the YPC celebrates the birth of Katherine Anne Porter, born on this day in 1890. 🖌📝📖Porter's writing earned her a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award. She was nominated for a Nobel Prize three times, and was even featured on a U.S. postage stamp.

After the last two hectic weeks of writing nearly 40 pages, reading five novels and so many 1880s periodical articles, and trying to sell our house, I took an hour yesterday to go to an antique store. Fun fact: I don't have pierced ears (major fear of needles) so I love finding vintage screw-back earrings. I also study Victorian periodicals, but can't afford to buy any, so this beautiful 1905 issue of the Century Magazine (an American monthly periodical which ran from 1881-1930) will suffice. Kate Douglas Wiggin, who wrote the story named on the cover, also wrote the classic children's novel Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm. I also got a 1960s/early 70s orlon sweater vest, because I am cool.
[Book cover: The Bed-Time Book, by #HelenHayWhitney, 1907; charcoal, watercolor on board, 18 x 15"] ———————————————————————— #JessieWillcoxSmith (1863-1935) was among the most gifted of the students of #HowardPyle, and she took to heart his precept of (loosely put) studying a particular subject thoroughly, and conversely, painting what one knows best in order to bring the subject alive. Quite early, she settled on exploring the universe of the child, and did so with great sensitivity and tenderness over the first 30 years of this century. Her mature work in no way resembles her teacher's, but bears more affinity to that of Edward Penfield and Toulouse-Lautrec and other poster artists, echoing the contemporary graphic approach with its emphasis on a spare but expressive charcoal line, somewhere between the fluidity of Art Nouveau and the boxiness of the Arts & Crafts movement. This style, together with excellent draughtsmanship, and her strongly designed compositions, (often unusual because of their view from the child's perspective) inspired a school of followers. Smith worked most comfortably with charcoal, often adding watercolor washes, occasionally varnishing over the drawing to add highlights in oil. Smith was a prolific book illustrator, and remarkably, many of these beautiful volumes are in print today, probably bought as much for adults' nostalgia as for their relevance to children. Her magazine covers, given little attention by her bibliographer Edward Nudelman, are no less important. Like her illustrations of verse, they tend to depict quintessential moments of childhood: playing with blocks, fear of the dark, etc., so they function quite well as pictures apart from their original connection with text. Through her pictures of children, whether illustrations for fairy tales or of simple domestic scenes, Smith changed and enlarged the appreciation of children in American popular culture by her enormously sympathetic portrayals. #TheWaterBabiesAFairyTaleForALandBaby ———————————————————————— ジェシー・ウィルコックス・スミス(Jessie Willcox Smith, 1863年9月6日 - 1935年5月3日)は、アメリカ🇺🇸のイラストレーター。児童書のためのイラストレーションで知られ、19世紀後半から20世紀初頭にかけて著書や雑誌に多大な貢献をした。 #howardpyle #helenhaywhitney #jessiewillcoxsmith #thewaterbabiesafairytaleforalandbaby
