This fantastic phrase started a biweekly Patreon-exclusive series illustrating Victorian slang! All entries are taken from The Victorian Dictionary of Slang & Phrase by J. Redding Ware and I hope you’ll find these as interesting as I do 🥰 Do you have any favorite old-timey sayings?


I’m changing the posting day for my regular Veinity Fair comics to Tuesday and, hopefully, I’ll be able to stick with that 😉👻
