Photos by the author. Note: I write up driving impressions of virtually every car I photograph within a couple of days of the drive, so everything is fresh in my memory. Occasionally, because of the constraints of format, the prepared text doesn't run in the print magazines. Now, thanks to the joys of the blogosphere and its limitless space, we can feature it here. The opportunity to drive this month's Buyers' Guide car, a Lotus Elite, greeted your photographer the morning of the shoot. Now, small cars often worry your plus-size tester; it's not getting in that worries me, but rather working ...

The 1808 Capped Bust Quarter Eagle graded PCGS MS 65 thundered to $2,350,000 on May 19 in New York.
I have been involved in the numismatic field for more than four decades. In that time, I've had the privilege to catalog common coins and rarities, analyze the U.S. coin market via public and private sales, and maintain one of the most respected price guides and newsletters for U.S. coins. In the course of a year, hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of collector coins hit the auction blocks via live sale and Internet-only venues. Since the advent of third-party independent grading nearly 30 years ago, today's dealers, astute collectors and the novice hobbyist can all take advantage of population reports ...

Anonymous, 1778 Coiffure de l'indépendance ou Le triomphe de la liberté
By Hunter Oatman-StanfordFast fashion might seem like a modern invention, but in the turbulent world of 18th-century France, when Marie Antoinette was calling the shots, fashion moved at light speed: In an era when several artisans would be called upon to labor over a single garment, styles shifted by the hour, rendering fashion magazines, which were printed every 10 days, outdated before their ink was even dry. “Fashion itself went out of fashion. Nobody wanted to look like they were trying too hard.” Not unlike today, the streets of Paris in the 18th century were filled with people wearing flashy outfits referencing ...

Van Briggle Mountain Crag Brown
Below is a guest post from noted Van Briggle author and collector Kathy Honea Described in Van Briggle early literature as a glaze containing the browns and greens found in a mountain crag, this glaze consists of a rich honey-brown with over spray of a medium-bright green. Although certainly numerous shades of brown and green glazes were produced within the first decade of Van Briggle pottery production, this particular combination of these specific colors was prevalent in the 1920s until the mid-1930s period. Historically, the story has been repeated that the formulas for these colors were lost in the flood of 1935; ...

Her friend Degas was amazed by both her bearing and her artistic gifts – even declaring that he could 'hardly believe a woman could draw so well!' Mary Cassatt first took part in the Impressionists' exhibitions in 1879, and is perhaps best known for her portraits of children and mothers. La Fillette au Chapeau is a classic example: the little girl is shown front-on, with her ... ...
