9781567185317: Victoria Regina Tarot Companion

Travel back in time and experience the industry and opulence of Queen Victoria's reign, a time when the sun never set on the British Empire. Featuring the exquisite steel and wood engravings of the late Victorian era, the Victoria Regina Tarot captures the essence of Britain's golden age. Artist and deck creator Sarah Ovenall used original engravings from nineteenth-century commercial illustrations to create the unique collage art of the Victoria Regina Tarot. The result is a Tarot that is both nostalgic and modern. The court cards depict prominent Victorians, while the traditional Tarot suit symbols have been replaced with symbols of the Victorian age: cups become Mason jars, wands are fountain pens, coins are pocket watches, and swords become guns. This item is a companion book to the Tarot deck (Tarot cards not included).
