Victoriana.Com, a site dedicated to the Victorian era, celebrates 10 years online with the unveiling of Victoriana Magazine, a free online magazine for Victorian enthusiasts. It is a vibrant and inspiring publication that cuts through the complexities of modern life to illustrate what was beautiful in the past.
Victoriana Magazine transforms the internet into an online time-machine focusing on the decorative arts and lifestyles of the Victorian era (1837-1901) with articles from both current experts and Victorian era publications. This free online magazine provides ideas, inspiration and information on Victorian fashion, decorating, remodeling, entertaining, holidays, history and more. Each illustrated issue contains a special crafts section, children’s corner, shopper's guide, plus the latest museum exhibits.
According to Editor Joanne Haug, “No other online magazine provides such a fresh and colorful approach to a subject well over a century old. Victoriana Magazine captures the pleasures and traditions of an earlier period and transforms them to be relevant to today’s living.”
The premiere issue of Victoriana Magazine provides an intimate look at the excitement and glitz of entertaining in the Victorian era, focusing on who wore what to a New York society ball as well as themed parties for both children and adults. Other articles explore Victorian bathrooms and bathrobes for the rich and famous; remodeling with ornate tin ceilings, and pictures of children’s nursery dishes.

Since 1996, the Victoriana.Com web site has evolved from a small history page to one of the most visited and trusted online resources for the Victorian era. The site divides the 19th century into over 60 topics featuring a wealth of information, including images and resources about Victorian Christmas celebrations, Victorian weddings, and Victorian clothing and accessories. Also featured are articles on Victorian decorating and remodeling, history and royalty, dolls and toys, plus much more. Victoriana.Com even has a study center with over two hundred articles from both current experts and Victorian era publications; an antique marketplace offering a diverse listing of antique and collectible items; as well as a section titled Behind Closed Doors presenting a seldom seen collection of articles about the darker side of Victorian private lives.
Visitors can also read about women’s issues, such as unsuitable Victorian men and 19th century alcohol consumption. It offers a unique chance for visitors to view and research a growing collection of original Victorian articles on numerous topics reprinted from the 1800s magazine “Harper’s Bazar.” Most articles have not been re-published since their original printing over one hundred years ago and many are embellished with their original artwork. This growing collection of information, colorful illustrations, and easy access encourage visitors to return to the Victoriana.Com web site again and again. Ten years later, nearly two million visitors a year come to explore the Victorian era and show children the magic of a Victorian Christmas, discover the romance of a Victorian wedding, remodel their Victorian home, and much more.
