Book Description: Like a bridge from their turn of the century to ours, the Victorians' passion for rosy-cheeked babies and twining hearts, teddy bears and Old St. Nick fills us with a singular joy. In the gifted hands of Cynthia Hart, the doyenne of Victoriana, these images are transformed. Working with hundreds of rare pieces of paper ephemera, a profusion of fresh flowers, rich fabrics, laces, antique jewelry, and other collectibles, she creates resplendent collages evoking beauty, charm, nostalgia, and whimsy. A success for twelve strong years, VICTORIANA enters its thirteenth as fresh and vibrant as its first. And happily, the gift collection continues: Packaged with each calendar are 4 die-cut full-color postcards, a pretty year-at-a-glance desktop calendar, and a 24-page "Victoriana Book of Days" birthday book.
