Hooray for Harriet!

Friday, 3 February 2017

Hi, there, I am very pleased to announce that I've received the final drawings from Harriet Winterburn of the houses that will form the Chapter Openers for the book (and from which some of you will be receiving a print).  How will you choose? They are really wonderful and I'm very much looking forward to everyone else getting to see how detailed, original and atmospheric they are, which is not so apparent here. Here's a snapshot from the portfolio showing Abbotsford (above) and Restoration House (model for Miss Havisham's Satis House in Great Expectations). For anyone who would like a print but didn't get to the pledge box in time, I'm sure Harriet can accommodate you once the book is out.

Just the last edits to finish up now in the next week or so. And I'm just heading off to look at some 18th- and 19th-century engravings which will make up some of the other illustrations.

Nearly there. As always, I'm very grateful for your patience and support.
