    We're Puttin' on Our Shades for Golden Rule Days, Tuesday's Tip


    Miss Penelope Dreadful is pleased to endorse Golden Rule Days, the latest edition of Shades of the Departed Magazine published by footnoteMaven.


    Inside the over of this beautifully illustrated full-sepia journal, the reader will find 122 pages filled with perfectly precious photographs, handsome heirlooms, attractive artwork, persuasive prose and various verse, along with a short work presented by yours truly, Miss Penelope Dreadful.

    As readers may (or may not) know, this reporter has enjoyed weaving tales of suspense, intrigue, and near-truth for many issues of Shades of the Departed, (now available in back issues from the Publisher). These various pieces of protracted prose are inspired by Miss Maven's extensive collection of Photographs of various subjects. Miss Maven proffers the photograph and Miss Dreadful delivers the deed, er goods. 

    Our latest tale involves unraveling the story behind the old photograph, and takes into consideration the Science of Phrenology as revealed by a careful analysis of the photograph on exhibit, that of Schoolteacher Alice B. Olver. Please enjoy "Penny's Dreadful Secrets Unlocking the Clues in Old Photographs" beginning on page 18 of the current issue of Shades of the Departed Magazine. Feel free to address your compliments to Miss Dreadful ℅ the Publisher.

    Penelope Dreadful, you are the heart of Shades Magazine. I am continually amazed by what forms on the page from your writer's mind.

    May I just say, "I LOVE THE BANNER." And the fascinator is so you!

    Thank you for returning with a dreadfully interesting tale, and for always being there my friend.

    I wouldn't miss an issue, fM! It's dreadfully exciting to be "on staff" with you at the Editor's Desk. I can't wait for my next assignment.

    Penelope, I have always loved Shades of the Departed since I came to Twitter last year. I wondered who was behind it. A sophisticated, gorgeous magazine that casts a half-humorous, half-knowing aura. I'm going to Tweet it.
