The Victorian Times Collection - Vol. II
January-June 2015

Every month, Victorian Times is your ticket to travel back in time and explore life in the Victorian era. Victorian Times is composed entirely of articles from actual Victorian periodicals: genuine Victorian recipes, craft projects, fashion tips, articles on etiquette, historical features, holiday customs, and so much more. Get the inside scoop on the royal family, meet the royal pets, go upstairs in the Victorian home to discover what life was like for the lady of the house, and downstairs to explore life as a servant. Each issue brings together a fascinating selection of features, fiction, poetry, and gorgeous Victorian artwork. There is no other publication like it, online or off!

Beginning in September 2015, Victorian Times will be available in a quarterly print edition, aptly titled Victorian Times Quarterly. The first twelve issues of Victorian Times (July 2014-June 2015) are available in print in two six-month collections. Here's what you'll find in Volume II (January-June 2015):
