The Mauve Decade was originally published in 1926 and is written in an abstract style that may be incomprehensible to some looking for straight history. Try it at your library before you buy. I think it can be seen as an interpretive work giving counterpoint to ordinary histories, similar to the more abstract or artsy responses to modern life published today.

Hardcover (April 1993) Stewart Tabori & Chang; ISBN: 1556702426
A gift book celebrating the friendship between Victorian women. Their keepsake books became living histories, as they inscribed poetry and prose, added illustrations, attached locks of hair, or inserted tokens of their handwork between the pages of their friends' albums.
