About this site

A research tool built using OMEKA software, the Y90s Database of Ornament categorizes and indexes textual ornaments in Yellow Nineties magazines and establishes a standard vocabulary set for markup. Textual ornaments in The Dial, The Evergreen: A Northern Seasonal, The Green Sheaf, and The Savoy are currently available. 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 little magazines, including initial letters, headpieces, tailpieces, and borders.
