A Victorian Christmas

A Victorian Christmas was published in November 1992 by Signet and contains Victorian Christmas stories by authors Patricia Gaffney, Betina Krahn, Edith Layton, Mary Jo Putney, and Patricia Rice. This was the only year that this was published, so it may not have been as popular as its regency counterpart.

Allan Kass illustrates a family celebrating Christmas day as they sing around the piano and play with gifts just opened. I like all of the detail Kass puts into these festive covers with a highly decorated tree, the expressions of the children, and the detail of the outfits worn. I like that it evokes memories of past and future holidays.
