Welcome!

     


There is a Victorian road I can always find,

even in a strange land.     

                          --Emily Isaacson

 


 

Emily's next book Ageless . . .  contains the story

of the Regency Household.


Rockland, 1897

 Celia lives in the oppressive late 1800’s. She and her sisters believe they have the potential to be more in life than the menial housewives their class dictates. She takes work outside the home as a governess at the Rossiter Estate while her sister models for an art school. Eventually the girls travel with their parents to England to be ageless muses for the painting Flora and the Zephyrs.


Flora and the Zephyrs (contain five women models) depicted as the five Regency sisters.


From the book . . .

John William Waterhouse sat at his desk, at the large house in London where he made his residence. A Pre-Raphaelite painter, he was contemplating his next work, sketching out his plans for another painting. This time it would hang in the Royal Gallery. He knew he needed a certain woman to entrance him and imbue the work with an authenticity and captivating beauty. He thought perhaps that he awaited the awakening of another Rose, Miranda, Circe or Ophelia. The canvas would stare him down with frightening whiteness then come to life in a vivid palette. The sky would hand over his latest notion thunderously, making his mind resinous as a stringed orchestra in London. This time, he put on his coat, locked the studio door and headed for the Art Institute.

_________________________________________________

Victoriana is the poetry of times past. Children run in the fields of wildflowers. The seasons' many colors have found their voice at last, with dedicated romance. From celebrated author and artist Emily Isaacson, we are given a breath of fresh air of all things Victoria in her work of art in three sections.

From flowers arranged, to gingham aprons, nostalgia rules this era. Victoriana by Isaacson is a revisiting of Victorian times, and their three tier influence on modern day relationships: decor, art, and thought. She is the creator of many quotable moments on the road to Victoria.

Emily Quote . . .

 

 

I took up my favored pen,

and the meter of the salt roar,

the splendid gathering of stony shells

and aged driftwood

splashed off the pages

of the handmade paper, enameled

with rose blossoms and leaves,

for the retrieving of countries

almost lost

in the density of ocean,

for the salve of a wound time has marred.
