The Renaissance is a serious blog geared for the modern wear of pince-nez. Naturally, I try to have some fun and keep it lighthearted as much as possible. We do recognize that pince-nez are often worn as a key part of period costumes. This is a great way to bring realism to historical reenactments and provide great public relations for pince-nez.
This is a photo of Michael from Australia, a pince-nez wearer and reader of the Renaissance. In this photo, he is dressed up as the town crier for his young son's school fair. I'm sure the youngsters were impressed!
