Victorian Fantasy is an art form that flourished in opposition to the repressive social and intellectual conditions of Victorianism.

Fantasy Art Playing Cards and Art Gifts will be mailed to you in November - just in time for the holidays. Fantasy Art Playing Cards and Art Gifts will make an elegant and entertaining addition to your holiday sharing.
The face cards will be by one artist for each suit: Edward Burner-Jones for the Spades, Sophie Anderson for the Hearts, John Waterhouse for the Clubs and Evelyn de Morgan for the Diamonds. The numbered cards in each suit will be either by the same artist or by by artists whose work is similar to that used for the face card art for that suit. The art on the numbered cards will have a margin to allow for clear recognition of the numbers. Other artists may include Dante Gabrielle Rossetti, Frederick Sandys, John Roddam Spencer Stanhope, Marie Spartali Stillman, Frederic Leighton, Simeon Solomon, Arthur Hughes and Peter Nicolai Arbo
NOTE: if you'd like some of your decks, posters or T-shirts to be from an earlier Kickstarter project Fairy Tale Art by Arthur Rackham Playing Cards, just let me know when you respond to the survey I'll send out shortly after the funding goal is met. Uncut sheets are not available for the Fairy Tale Art images.
