About this site

A research tool built using OMEKA software, the Y90s Database of Ornament categorizes and indexes textual ornaments in the fin-de-si├Ęcle little magazines remediated on Yellow Nineties 2.0 and establishes a standard vocabulary set for markup. Textual ornaments may be studied in Database Collections for The Dial (1889-1897), The Evergreen: A Northern Seasonal (1895-96), The Green Sheaf (1903-4), The Pageant (1896-97) and The Savoy (1896). Each digital 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 these little magazines, including initial letters, headpieces, tailpieces, and borders.
