Abundance by Sena Jeter Naslund: Naslund traces the life of Marie Antoinette from her "birth as a citizen of France" at age 14 to her execution, told from her own point of view. The novel provides a wealth of detail as Toinette savors life at Versailles, indulges in hair and clothing rituals, gets acquainted with the French court, and experiences motherhood and loss. The outcome is known, but the account is riveting.

Abundance: A Novel of Marie Antoinette With penetrating insight and with wondrous narrative skill, Sena Jeter Naslund offers an intimate, fresh, heartbreaking, and dramatic reimagining of this truly compelling woman that goes far beyond popular myth—and she makes a bygone time of tumultuous change as real to us as the one we are living in now. A rather accurate piece of historical fiction.
My favorite book.

Illustrations from the 1766 edition of the banned book Aristotle's Complete Master-Piece Improved of "monsters" -- the only idea presented in this book that is still shocking outside of some of the dodgy medical advice. It attempts to provide case studies and give advice on how to avoid birth defects.

"The Allure of the Castrato" from Notches: (re)marks on the history of sexuality - Castrati, male singers who were castrated in childhood to preserve their upper register, were somewhat androgynous in nature as a result of the physical effects of the procedure. And, it turns out, some people liked that.

Baudouin, Pierre Antoine - The Honest Model - 1769. I love the way Baudouin, a pupil of Boucher, is not afraid to expose the slightly seedy underside of 18th Century Parisian life, don't you? He's the darker, less romantic version of Boucher. ~Leah Marie Brown
