About this site

A research tool built using OMEKA software, Y90s Database of Ornament categorizes and indexes textual ornaments in Yellow Nineties magazines and establishes a standard vocabulary set for markup. The first phase of the project (2014-2018) indexed the textual ornaments in the four volumes of The Evergreen: A Northern Seasonal. The second phase of the project (2018-2019) added the textual ornaments for The Savoy. We are currently adding ornaments from The Dial. Each published edition on Yellow Nineties 2.0 includes an image of the decorated page, hyperlinked to the Database. Users can collect, compare, and analyze a rich visual archive of ornaments used in fin-de- si├Ęcle aesthetic magazines.
