Charles Dickens Holiday Card

  • $28.95


British artist Amanda White has produced a series of notecards and holiday cards featuring her cut paper collages of historic houses of writers and poets. On the back of each card is printed a brief essay relating the dates the author lived in the house, what works were created there, and other information about the location, including what he or she loved about the setting and how it inspired creativity.  The entire description from the back of the card can be read below.

Mr Dickens and his Dog in Doughty Street, Christmas Eve

Number 48 Doughty Street in Holborn was the home of Charles Dickens from 1837 to 1839, productive and youthful years which saw him write Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby as well as completing the Pickwick Papers and beginning Barnaby Rudge. Here he is, later in life, returning for a sentimental Christmas visit, recalling past times, during one of his perambulations of the city.
