Enticement to Facebook


From my recent silence on this blog, you would not be to blame for suspecting I had abandoned our beloved Brotherhood entirely. This is, however, not at all the case! As has become the norm for so many things, much discussion has instead been moved...to Facebook. The Beautiful Necessity does not yet have a public fan page on there (though perhaps I should make one?), but here is a short list of public pages I highly recommend you peruse and "Like" for a plethora of Pre-Raphaelite Pretties.

Pre-Raphaelite Passions is impressively steady in their stream of stunning and fascinating images and discussions.

Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood is the fan page for the phenomenal blog, and of course is a must-Like page. She has also started a brilliant Pre-Raphaelite book club. The current book is Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur

William Morris is a fan page that also posts an impressive array of gorgeousness.

William Morris Gallery has a fan page as well...great stuff.

Red House 's fan page is extremely exciting, seeing all the things they are uncovering and changing at the famous home of William Morris.

John William Waterhouse Monument Restoration Appeal is a great cause, and a good place for people with the common enthusiasm for Waterhouse to gather.


That is just a small sampling of the Pre-Raphaelite beauty available on Facebook for your every day admiration. So go! Explore! And please, if you know of more pages you highly recommend, share them here.

I may have a facebook, but I prefer to be on there only a few days a week. I much prefer the blogging world. Are there blogs you would recommend?

Facebook is good and has some great contributors but the new Google system looks like it might be the winner eventually. I still like blogs.

Hi Grace, yes i'm already linked up to those pre-raph FB sites...they're wonderful!! I'd love to see you there too....i find FB easy to get around and connect that's why i really love it...i also like blogs that link directly to FB so that you can more easily share. Hope to see you there soon!
Warm Regard, Susan Turner.

Hermes, I definitely don't see Facebook ever making my love for blogs obsolete, but it's a fun addition too. :)

Susan, I hope to add a fan page over there very soon :)
