In response to Pamflets by way of advertisement, written by Chrissie on May 01, 1998 at 19:59:35
] I need some information for a story I am writing on the Fan Fic board. I wondered how advertisements were made in the Regency. By paper, of course, but I also wondered if people couldn't print pamflets that were sent round. (in this case, it is an art-master from London who looks for students) Can anybody help me with this? Please e-mail me if you know something.
My gut feeling says that this wouldn't have happened, as his potential customers would not approve of 'touting for business'. Paper was relatively expensive in those days, too. I can't give you any particular reason for this though. Better stick to the newspaper !
