A Notice to Collectors of authentic Victorian and
Gothic Lowbrow and to the Public:

Brennan Dalsgard Publishers begs to inform the public that certain unscrupulous parties, hoping to profit by the enviable reputation gained by Madame Talbot's Victorian Lowbrow and Gothic Lowbrow-themed posters and dolls, should regard such as a blatant imitation of Madame Talbot's hand-crafted Victorian Lowbrow posters and dolls.

Wishing to reap where they have not sown, please be aware of inferior product that is placed on the market as the genuine article. We hereby announce this in order that the public may not be imposed upon to purchase only mere facsimiles of Madame Talbot.

Watch out for shameless shoddy imitiation product that has absolutely no new ideas or innovating concepts to add to the original and which are being marketed hoping to profit from the business model and intellectual property which Madame Talbot has created for herself and her company.

Please make certain that the name appears on every Victorian Lowbrow and Gothic Lowbrow poster you buy. Otherwise, it is not genuine.

Madame Talbot's Victorian Lowbrow and Gothic Lowbrow

Vic·to·ri·an Low·brow
Pronunciation: (vik-'tOr-E-n lbrou)
also Goth·ic Low·brow
Pronunciation: (Goth·ik lbrou)

1. Of, relating to, or belonging to the period of the reign of Queen Victoria and being uncultivated; vulgar; characteristic of a person who is not cultivated or does not have intellectual tastes.

2. Being in the highly ornamented, massive style of architecture, decor, and furnishings popular in 19th-century England while at the same time being quite immoral for the higher classes i.e. local pub, dime museum, brothel, sideshow, music halls.

3. The term Gothic was used in the early 19th century literary style that used medieval settings in order to create an atmosphere of horror and mystery. In reference to architecture and decorating, Gothic revival was first mentioned during the Victorian era in 1869 in the writings of C.L. Eastlake.

n. A person belonging to or exhibiting characteristics typical of or before the Victorian period having uncultivated tastes, wanting instead to associate with all aspects of an uncouth lower class society.

The Victorian Era was not only about Royalty, the Gentry and Upper Crust High Society, but also about the lower working classes whose tastes were more than a little less refined, if not even downright coarse. Victorian Lowbrow would be defined in terms of:

Sideshows and the Elephant Man, Victorian era tattooed ladies, strange medical exhibits, dime museums and East End shows, the cult of death and the funeral rituals of the lower classes, pubs, bars and saloons, public executions, titillating scandals involving death and betrayal, morbid legends such as Jack the Ripper and Lizzie Borden, the penny dreadful, Victorian drugs such as Opium dens, Absinthe rituals & Wormwood deliriums, Morphine syringes sold to High Society women, Chloral Hydrate fiends, Laudanum addicts, Secret Hashish Societies, laughing gas parties, and patent medicines. Also drinking one's cups, cocktails and grogs, Coach Inns and Night Houses, smoking pipes and cigarettes, morbid little jump rope songs, violent Punch and Judy puppet shows, Penny gaffs, the Resurrectionists, graveyard picnics, and etc.

But most importantly, the term Victorian Lowbrow was coined specifically to describe the amazing one-of-a-kind dark art of Madame Talbot's work.
