Three of Swords: A "Victorian Serial Novel"

I happen to be subscribed to Alice's Tea Cup monthly e-mail.  They are a very lovely tea and scone establishment in the Upper West Side of NYC.  I always visit when I am in town.  Here is the web address: http://www.alicesteacup.com/  And here is the Google info: http://tiny.cc/8sx0s   I recommend it as a nice, casual spot for tea and whimsy.

Now, for the point of my post... in the most recent Alice's Tea Cup email, they announced the winner of the monthly t-shirt design contest.  Her design is below and her bio stated: "Melissa Zayas is a graphic artist who graduated from the School of Visual Arts illustration department. She currently works in publishing, advertising and social media, and is the illustrator and co-author of the online Victorian serial novel Three of Swords."

Well, Alice looks "loli-fied" to me in this image.  And upon checking the website for this "online serial novel of Victorian magic," the female character is very "loli-fied" as well.  Here is the first volume of Three of Swords (with a girl on the cover in what looks to be tea parties ^_^).

The writing style is rather unique and I find the style of illustrations unlike most I've seen (more Westernized I suppose?).  Anyway, the point of this post is to share my find with you all in hopes that there are some who would appreciate a different sort of web entertainment with a Victorian flair.  Hope you enjoy.

Here is the Three of Swords homepage.
