"I saw their faces now and again peeping from the Tatler"

Today, the Tatler is a monthly magazine which focuses on the lives of the glamorous upper classes.

The original Tatler, which reported news and gossip from the London coffeehouses, was founded in 1709. It has existed in various forms since that time.

In the period referred to in Brideshead Revisited, the Tatler offered articles on fashion and reports of high society social events.
