(Work in Progress!) For years this site had the typical blogroll-type links in the sidebar, but I’ve grown tired of how cluttered it seems. I’ve decided that it would be far more useful to you if I created a page of links presented in a more organized fashion. Well, perhaps not organized, but I like having the space to tell you about sites I choose to link to, rather than just posting a list.
Elizabeth Siddal links
http://www.preraph.org/ The Pre-Raphaelite collection at the Delaware Art Museum, the largest Pre-Raphaelite collection outside of England.
http://www.preraphaelites.org/ Perhaps the most beautiful site on the internet. Pre-Raphaelite Online Resource
The Beautiful Necessity: written by Grace Nuth, who is a beautiful stunner in her own right. Filled with a passion for all things Pre-Raphaelite. It’s a gorgeous blog. Grace also shares a passion for mythic living and decorating at Domythic Bliss. Follow Grace on Twitter: @GraceNuth
The Earthly Paradise: written by Margaret Lozano, a historian with a passion for art, aesthetics and literature. Earthly Paradise is inspired by the art of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, classic literature and mythology and the writings of William Morris and the Romantic Poets.
Culture and Anarchy blog by Serena Trowbridge, editor of The Review of the Pre-Raphaelite Society. Very good blog about 19th c. literature, culture, history, gothic literature and more. Excellent Pre-Raphaelite posts.

Pre-Raphernalia: The Pre-Raph sketchbook cartoon of Raine Szramski. Brilliant. Hilarious. Perfect. Raine captures the essence of the Pre-Raphaelite circle in a delightful way.
Verity Holloway’s blog should be added to your feed reader ASAP. She shares my obsession for both Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Elizabeth Siddal, she’s knowledgeable about Pre-Raphaelite history and her observations are always brilliant. In other words, she’s ace.

Sites I enjoy:
I have a special fondness for actress Valerie Meachum, since we share a deep-seated interest in Elizabeth Siddal. Her blog, Divababble, is superb. Superb, I tell you. Plus, she’s working on a one-woman show featuring Lizzie. Follow on Twitter @valeriemeachum
Medieval Muse Pretty with a capital P. This blog often showcases the handiwork of the blog author, Lisa Gill. Her medieval-inspired bags are gorgeous. Also, beautiful images, poetry and anything else that inspires Lisa. One of my favorites.
Nineteenthcenturystuff.com, an academic website for those with an interest in the literature, art and culture of the 1900s. Very well done. Written by Karen Elizabeth Devlin. Follow on Twitter @19thcenturystuf
