Cards and Booklet are in Very Good condition, there is however some damage to the box. The art for the Victoria Regina Tarot deck is collages of steel and wood engravings from the late Victorian era. This was the height of this style of commercial illustration — soon half toning would replace it. Sarah Ovenall’s collage work is excellent. It is generally seamless, unlike some of the other collage decks I have seen. The Victorian era was an age of invention and technological progress. The cards capture this, as well as the lavish elegance of Victorian high society. Even the velvet deck bag with its tasseled drawstring seems to fit the Victorian mood.
