The third installment of The Standard Designer, the periodical I purchase with help from Senora M, my soon-to-be-mother-in-law, three months ago. Here are another eight pages (not image scans, as you can obviously tell) from the June 1896 edition of The Standard Designer. The pages are frightfully delicate and the edges deteriorate at a mere touch. So the quality of the physical magazine is rather poor. It has been mentioned a child used this antique as a coloring book at one time, *cringe!* so there may be marker bleeds on some of the pages. Nevertheless, the drawings are a joy and a real source of inspiration for me. I am already concocting outfits in my mind. Here they are. Enjoy, Dear Readers!
