From Ying’s Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know About the Victorians on her website’s Extras page:

Little-known truth: men sometimes wore corsets, too. It’s true, it’s true! Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s husband, was admired for his great posture and splendid tailoring. Turns out that he had help with his posture. And he certainly wasn’t alone.

YS Lee's BookplateSooo, thanks to my BRR post, you know that I LOVE LOVE LOVE YS Lee and her book A Spy in the House (and I fully expect to LOVE LOVE LOVE The Body at the Tower when I pick up my hold copy tomorrow!)–well I just found something else about YS Lee that I adore: her taste in bookplates! Bookplates are labels that are pasted or stuck into books that declare the owner and are often oh-so-hip looking. This is the design of Lee’s bookplate that she will sign for you to put in your book–all you have to do is email her and tell her what you would like inscribed on it! How fantastic is that?!

Have you met YS Lee? Do you have a YAuthor Adventure to share? Email Amber and we might post it on a YAuthor Stalking Tuesday!
