Nevertheless, I thought it was important to put Victoria up front and center since she still lends her name to most people's impressions of the 19th century, and because there are certainly a fair share of Victoria paper dolls out there (and I imagine there would be more if she weren't so sour and dowdy-looking most of the time). This particular one (click to see a slightly large image) is from Tom Tierney's Great Empresses and Queens. Tierney is probably the most prolific paper doll artist producing today. I have a lot to say about that, but rather than overwhelm, we'll just take it one day at a time.
